LUC is preparing a Conservation Management Plan covering both Oldbury Court Estate and Snuff Mills, for Bristol City Council. This will help the council to conserve important historic features and develop plans for the site in a way that does not have a negative impact on the historic and natural landscape but provides a space which is a valuable resource for people to use and enjoy.

We want to hear from users and non-users of the site to understand who is using the site, why and how, or if not what would attract you to using it, as well as what you think could be improved.
