Avonmouth and Lawrence Weston Neighbourhood Partnership
Get involved with decision making at a local level in Avonmouth and Lawrence Weston.
What’s happening to Neighbourhood Partnerships?
The council is ending its support for Neighbourhood Partnerships and is currently consulting on alternative ways of providing local grants and local decision making about the Community Infrastructure Levy which don’t require officer support.
Now is a great time to get involved to help shape community-led neighbourhood organisations and local decision making or to get involved with something that interests you and others locally.
Help shape what happens next for this area
Local people, elected councillors, community groups and service providers are exploring the different ways of working together for mutual benefit to help develop what happens next for local involvement and decision making. If you would like to find out more please contact the Neighbourhood Management Service.

No further meetings are scheduled. Previous meetings documents can be found here.
