What is a Neighbourhood Partnership? Read about it here
Responding to the calls from the government for people to have more say in local decision making, Bristol City Council has introduced new forms of Neighbourhood Governance across the city. The new structures are called Neighbourhood Partnerships.
Neighbourhood Partnerships bring together local councillors, statutory agencies (like the local police, health services and schools), and local voluntary and community groups, with local residents. Each Neighbourhood Partnership covers the areas of 2 or 3 Council wards.
Read the current brief here .
St Andrews Park is in the Redland ward, so we are in the Bishopston, Cotham and Redland (BCR) NP.
Ashley Ward is in a different NP forum, so even if you live close to the park you will find you belong to one of several possible groups. See the NP Bristol Ward Map here
Forum meetings are open to all so feel free to go along.
The NP website shows dates for the meetings here
The latest minutes of the BCR NP full meeting are in the green box on the same NP website here
If you live in the Bishopston Ward NP area you can read an excellent account of their activities on The Bishopston Society website here
