Bishopston, Cotham & Redland
Neighbourhood Partnership news

BCR NP Forum

Thursday 16th March, 7pm - 9pm,
Redland Green School

Combined forum for all three (Bishopston, Cotham and Redland) wards.
  • Meet PCC Sue Mountstevens
  • Get updates on local policing, street scene, parks, libraries, street banners, supported bus routes etc.
  • Find out what the Council budget cuts mean for our area
  • Help decide what should happen following the ending of Neighbourhood Partnerships
At our public forum, we will be welcoming Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens to tell us about the changing nature of policing and her priorities for the future. There will also be the usual updates from our local neighbourhood police and on other local activities.

As you may have heard, Bristol City Council has had to impose significant cuts to services in order to balance its budget in the face of increased costs and reduced government funding. These cuts include funding for parks, libraries, local road schemes and our Neighbourhood Partnership.
Find out more at the meeting.

We have started to discuss whether some kind of local organisation might be useful instead of the NP.

Please, come along to say what you think should happen, and help decide what we can do together to support our local community in the future.
