We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

Bristol City Council is responsible for the funding and management of Public Health in Bristol. The Public Health funding given to local authorities by central government has reduced by an estimated £700m in recent years. Bristol Public Health has reduced its spending by 17.5% since 2015. Bristol City Council needs to make an additional £2m in savings over the next two years because of reduced funding from central government.

This consultation set out proposals to make these savings through a combination of decommissioning and changing services. The services affected will be:

  • Alcohol Brief Advice
  • Children’s Weight Management Services
  • Adults’ Weight Management Services
  • NHS Health Checks Service
  • Stop Smoking Services
  • Substance Misuse Services (Shared Care)
  • Sexual Health Services, including Chlamydia Screening

We consulted on plans to improve congestion and improve public transport reliability on the A4018. The consultation ran from 4 February and 17 March 2019.

You Said

The consultation received 2726 responses.

A full report summarising the response to this consultation will be published for the June 2019 Cabinet meeting.

We Did

Following the public consultation, the A4018 scheme has been revised.

You can read the summary of the recommended changes to the scheme which will be presented to the June Cabinet meeting here.

We Asked

We ran a consultation to gather people’s views on whether they would like to see an increase to the current opening hours for Central Library. They were given two options for how increased opening hours could look, an option to keep the opening hours pattern the same, or to suggest their own hours.

Central Library was closed on a Wednesday.

The new proposals were a result of feedback from customers and from the 2017 Libraries consultation. It was part of the work being done to improve and futureproof the service following the decision to retain all 27 libraries.

You Said

We received 951 responses to this consultation.

The results were as follows:

  • 7.3% of respondents preferred Option A
  • 42.4% of respondents preferred Option B 
  • 46.1% of respondents preferred Option C
  • 3.8% of respondents suggested an alternative pattern of opening hours.

We Did

Option C was the most popular and we will be implementing these new hours from late May 2019. We will issue a press release for the exact day two weeks beforehand and will also update the website and opening hours signs at the library.

We shall be opening the Central Library on the following pattern from late May this year:

Option C -   52.5 hours


  9.30am - 5pm


  9.30am - 7pm


  9.30am - 5pm


  9.30am - 7pm


  9.30am - 5pm


  10am - 5pm


  1pm - 5pm
