Your neighbourhood consultation 2017
Due to reductions in central government funding and the needs of a growing and ageing population, the council will have less money to provide services in Bristol over the next five years.
We consulted on which service areas would be reduced from October 2016 to January 2017. In February 2017, we decided what sums of money had to be saved in each area. Now we need to decide how to make the savings. This is where you come in.
We're asking for your views on a group of five consultations which bring together savings proposals that impact on neighbourhoods and local services you may use regularly. They are:
- Bristol Community Links
- Public toilets
- School crossing patrols
- Withdrawal of funding for Neighbourhood Partnerships
These surveys are open for 12 weeks, closing on Tuesday 5 September 2017.
The Your Neighbourhood booklet has details about the proposals.
Reductions to Supporting People budgets
We're also consulting on a number of different ways of reducing the budget for Supporting People services, which will achieve savings of £1.8 million a year.
Give us your views on our proposals for changes to Supporting People services.
The Supporting People consultation booklet has details about the proposals.
This survey will be open for 12 weeks, closing Tuesday 5 September 2017.
