The St George Community Planning Group is organising a public meeting to give an update on our work over the past few months. This will include sharing the ideas of some students from UWE that we have been working with for improvements to the park and asking you for your views.
There will also be an update from Cllr Asher Craig on the plans for toilets and for the café in the park which are to be funded by ‘Community Infrastructure Levy’ (CIL). This money was allocated by our local Councillors via the Area Committee following our meetings last year. This meeting will also start the process of allocating money for this year, so if you have ideas for projects that you would like to be funded there will be a chance to have your say.
More details about the process for allocating CIL and how the Area Committees work are on the Council’s websites at www.bristol.gov.uk/people-communities/funding-local-projects
Information about the projects discussed last year can be seen at stgeorgecommunity.org.uk/network/projects/
The Police will also be at the meeting to talk about the incidents of crime and anti-social behaviour that occured in the park last year and to update us on the situation in St George in general.
There will also be brief updates from local Councillors on the issues they have been addressing.
The St George Community Planning Group is a ‘topic’ group of the St George Community Network, Details of all our topic groups can be seen at stgeorgecommunity.org.uk/network/topic-groups/
