Brightly-coloured bunting will replace Portishead in Bloom flags on the shops in West Hill next year, after complaints from residents.
The robust flags which are put up in Portishead High Street each year to mark the start of summer, were this year extended to cover West Hill, but that disgruntled some of those living above the shops there.
Portishead in Bloom volunteer Judith Burrill said: “The flag brackets are quite close to some of the windows of the flats on West Hill and so when it was windy they disturbed those living in them.
“Some of the shops had to take the flags in every night and put them back up the next day.
“It’s not a problem we have had in the past, but we had to look for a solution for the future and came up with the idea of bunting in West Hill instead for 2017.”
