Your City, Our Future

COVID-19 has caused great disruption to our lives and livelihoods. As the city recovers we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to think about what kind of future we want for Bristol.

Earlier this year we asked you what you liked and disliked about living in Bristol before lockdown, about your experiences during lockdown, and what you wanted Bristol to be like in the future.

That survey was the start of the Your City, Our Future process to involve residents in shaping Bristol's future. We now have a clearer picture of the kind of future citizens want us to aim for.

We received a fantastic 6,535 responses to the survey and this has provided a wealth of valuable views and ideas which can be discussed by the citizens’ assembly. 

You can read the survey results report here.

The next stage in the process is holding Bristol’s first citizens’ assembly.This will discuss the important question: “How do we recover from COVID-19 and create a better future for all in Bristol?” and is taking place across four weekends:

  • 16-17 January
  • 6-7 February
  • 27-28 February
  • 6-7 March
