No. It will be in the county of south Gloucestershire. It maybe classed as greater Bristol. But it is not in the borders of the city of Bristol or the county of Bristol.

Not in the borders, not in Bristol.

Woh, woh, woh......of course there is a greater Bristol the same as there is a greater Manchester, you do realise that Man U are not actually in the city of Manchester. Half of the urban extension of north and east Bristol is outside of the archaic city boundaries, kingswood, downend, hanham, staple hill, emersons, warmley, longwell green, mangotsfield, frenchay, filton, patchway, Bradley stoke, stoke gifford, cribbs....I could go on.....All suburbs of "Bristol", dont let a few administrative lines tell you otherwise.

Let's not belittle our city just to try and get one over on the sags

I don't think anyone is trying to belittle the City. I do not decide where the City boundaries are, you do not decide where the City boundaries are, the poster you replied to does not decide where the city boundaries are. They are where they are, UWE is outside the City boundaries, therefore Rovers are moving out of Bristol.

That's a fact. One team in Bristol.

Fact is Fact and there is no argument , there is no Greater Bristol . However there is a Greater Manchester.

Whether or not you think there's a greater Bristol, and regardless of political boundaries, the postal address is Bristol and it will have a Bristol postcode. I live in Yate and though, politically, Yate is in South Glos, the postal address and postcode is still BRISTOL.

I appreciate the technicalities of what is being said but come on....are you telling me people born and bred in these areas are not bristolians? Or that they dont see themselves as bristolian? Current boundary lines split through suburbs, streets even......my in-laws live in downend, one half of the street is "Bristol" the other comes under "south glos". It's still Bristol regardless of what day your bins are taken. It's about the area you are from not what some government pen pusher decides when drawing boundaries..boundaries change, but the people and the area don't. I was brought up in kingswood now living in stoke gifford, I pay my council tax to south glos but don't try and tell me I'm not a bristolian Yes we can take the p1ss out of the gas about "leaving" Bristol but its a weak arguement and means nothing at the end of the day

No clearly not as it is totally separate from Bristol and a town in its own right. The areas I listed are connected to and are a continuation of the urban area of Bristol.

I was answering the post about postcodes.

Weston has a Bristol postcode.

As my daughter would say, 'just saying'.

Weston-super-Mare is a town in its own right - just because it has a Bristol postcode doesn't mean it's in Bristol, it simply means the mail is sorted and distributed from Bristol. The key element is the Post Town in the Royal Mail's addressing standard.

The post town for addresses in Weston-super-Mare is WESTON-SUPER-MARE

The post town for addresses in Yate is BRISTOL

Does that make sense now?

Yep, thanks.

Once again, I don't decide the City boundaries and neither do Royal Mail. Sorry about that.

Yes it is. Only just! But the answer to your question is yes, the planned Ashton Vale stadium is to be within city boundaries.

It is so much on the boarder that part of the earmarked site is indeed in North Somerset, however the stadium itself IS in Bristol.

Yate is not in Bristol, you just can't include places you wish to be in Bristol.

Agree you can't decide what constitutes Bristol based on the Royal Mail as they decide postcodes to suit themselves

My address is Milton, Abingdon, Oxfordshire but Abingdon is 5 miles away. Really, if anything, I live in Didcot, which is a bigger town and only 3 miles away.

Gas were quick to try and say that Ashton Vale was in North Somerset (just the access road). It's just a laugh to reinforce the fact that there is only OTIB. I think some people are taking it a bit too seriously…
