Henbury, Brentry and Southmead Neighbourhood Partnership
Get involved with decision making at a local level in Henbury, Brentry and Southmead.
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
Each ward has decided to develop their own arrangements for future involvement and local decision making. To find out more about what is happening for Southmead, or for Henbury and Brentry, contact the Neighbourhood Management Service.
There are a few final pieces of NP-related work currently in progress that you might like get involved with:
Henbury and Brentry
- Parks and open spaces improvements: a group of residents are working with the Council on how £70,000+ of local development money could be spent on improvements to parks and play areas in the ward. Do you think you could help? Do you want to see what is planned?
- Community notice boards: a group of local residents are pursuing the installation of five or six community notice boards in the Southmead area. Do you think you could help? Do you want to see where they might go?
- Southmead parks and open spaces access: to improve access to Southmead parks and open spaces for people using wheelchairs, mobility scooters, pushchairs and double buggies
