Name a sewage works after Edward Colston

Name a sewage works after Edward Colston

I propose renaming Avonmouth Sewage Works as the Colston Sewage Works.

Why is this important?

Many in Bristol and beyond, now regard Edward Colston as having committed crimes against humanity. Bristol is slowly beginning to embrace it's part in the slave trade and the philanthropic gestures it funded.

With the removal of Edward Colston's name from a Bristol concert venue, a suitable location is required in memorial to a local philanthropist. The location is one that is not loved, but has improved the lives of Bristolians.

Remember history, don't discard it - no matter how much it stinks.
