Have your say on the way forward for Neighbourhood Partnerships
Release date: Tue, 12/02/2013
Bristol residents are being urged to take part in a review of the future of city’s Neighbourhood Partnerships.
The Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson wants to develop the community decision-making bodies to enable them to have more say over local services.
Neighbourhood Partnerships were introduced by the authority in 2008 in order to give communities a greater say on local services such as street cleaning, park maintenance, recycling facilities, minor traffic schemes, highway maintenance and community safety. There are 14 in all covering the city.
The consultation, which got under way on Friday, February 1, will run until April 1, 2013.
The Mayor of Bristol said: “The launch of Neighbourhood Partnerships five years ago offered Bristol residents the opportunity for a real voice in the running of their communities. This consultation enables us to review how things are working and what more can be done to empower communities.
“I want Neighbourhood Partnerships to play a much bigger role in the running of the city with more say over their local services”
The consultation will include:
What should the purpose of Neighbourhood Partnerships be?
How can we improve the decision making process?
How can we get more people involved in decision-making?
How can we improve outreach work, community engagement and communications?
How residents can get involved:
