Bristol One City boards look to welcome new members

Organisations and individuals looking to play an active role in shaping the city’s journey towards its 2050 vision are being sought to join one of five Bristol One City boards.

31 January 2022

Bristol’s City Office is refreshing the membership some of its boards as part of an ongoing effort to create an inclusive system and ensure its work remains informed and driven by the widest range of knowledge and experience possible.

An open ‘expressions of interest’ process to join the refreshed boards has begun, inviting organisations and individuals with the qualities, skills, experience and/or influence to enable changes – while working in partnership with others – on the scale needed to achieve the goals of the Bristol One City Plan.

Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, said:

“The One City Plan is a blueprint for Bristol that pools the innovation and resources of hundreds of organisations across the city. Bristol One City boards play a vital role in delivering this vision and supporting our city’s journey towards building a fairer, healthier and sustainable place to live, work and visit. As we look towards our third year of this journey, it’s time to refresh the membership of these boards and welcome fresh ideas and talent. This is a unique opportunity to work across sectors and communities to leave a lasting legacy for the city and deliver a future in which nobody is left behind.”

The work of the boards forms an integral part of the Plan’s ambition to create a ‘fair, heathy and sustainable city’ by 2050, supported with a vision for each decade and goals which fall under six thematic areas: Children and Young People, Economy and Skills, Environment, Health and Wellbeing, Homes and Communities and Transport.

Each board focuses on a particular theme and is made up of members from sectors across Bristol relevant to each specific theme.

The Children and Young People’s, Economy and Skills, Homes and Communities and Transport Boards are refreshing their entire membership.

The Environment board are not refreshing the Board but are instead seeking to add one new member to provide specific expertise on community engagement around sustainable food, housing, transport or procurement.

Expressions of interest are being invited to the Bristol City Office from 9am on 24 January until 9am on 14 February.
