The Mayor of Bristol vetoed the decision to name South Bristol Road after a tobacco product

The Mayor of Bristol vetoed the decision to name South Bristol Road after a tobacco product

 

 

 

According to Bristol Live, after being opposed by the Smoking and Health Initiative (ASH), Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees vetoed the decision to name the South Bristol Road after a tobacco product.

 

 

The road was named Navy Cut Road to commemorate the brand produced by Imperial Brands Tobacco Factory, which previously occupied the area. However, after ASH said it was "morally unacceptable", Reese rejected the name and agreed to name the road after Florence Mills Brown, the first female mayor.

 

 

Congressman Richard Eddie criticized the move, saying Mayor Rhys had "imposed" his will on the citizens of the region.

 

 

"I have worked in Bristol City Council for 30 years. Contrary to all previous practices, your team did not ask my community and its elected members for their opinions on the street naming of my community, which I cannot escape," Eddie wrote in an email.

 

 

"Although I am sure that Florence Brown, the former mayor, is a woman with good reputation, why should the road here be named after a Labour politician who represents a constituency two miles away from North Bristol and has no obvious connection with Bishops worth?

 

 

"This is not just a small dispute about the naming of suburban streets in southern cities, but the core of the debate about whether Bristol should be ruled by a person with a 'God complex', or whether the local community and its formally elected members should be ruled by a person. It should decide its own destiny."
