Henbury, Brentry and Southmead

Get involved with decision making at a local level in Henbury, Brentry and Southmead wards.

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.

  • 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?
