We are consulting on the key improvements which local people want to see in their parks and open spaces within Henbury and Brentry. The Neighbourhood Partnership has approx. £80,000 to spend and this will be spent to deliver the main priorities which come from this survey. The consultation will also invite residents who want to contribute directly to their local green spaces to build on existing Friends of Groups. The survey will shape the longer term vision for the Henbury and Brentry Community Plan and inform future bids for funding to deliver improvements.
Paper surveys are available at: Henbury Library, Bradgate & Willow Tree Surgery, Henbury Leisure Centre, Pet-Alls Florist (Crow Lane), The Old Crow Pub, and Head Cases Hairdressers (Charlton Rd, Brentry). People can also drop off completed paper surveys at these venues for regular collection.
Why We Are Consulting
We want to make sure the £80,000 available for immediate improvements is spent on the ideas which have most support from residents. The Neighbourhood Partnership will use the information from the survey to do this.
What Happens Next
The results of this survey will be looked at by a Parks working group made up of Henbury & Brentry Councillors and local residents. They will identify the most supported improvement suggested and explore the costs of delivering them with Bristol City Council. Once that is clear they will put forward recommendations to the a Neighbourhood Partnership event in June 2017 for the ward councillors to make the final decision on allocating the funding to deliver the Parks work. If you are interested in taking part in this group you can give us your details when you complete the survey.
