BCC’s “Your Neighbourhood Consultation, 2017”

Earlier this year, when the Mayor and his Cabinet set the city’s budget for 2017/18 and beyond, we were warned that the council would have less money to provide services in Bristol over the next five years.
As a consequence, BCC are now seeking our views on some cost-cutting proposals – via a collection of five consultations. These consultations are designed to give a choice as to how the savings could impact on neighbourhoods and local services across the city. The five consultations are:

1 )   Bristol Community Links
2)   Libraries
3)   Public toilets
4)   School crossing patrols
5)   Withdrawal of funding for Neighbourhood Partnerships

Background information for all the consultations can be accessed from the Council’s Information Leaflet
The consultations are open for 12 weeks and close on Tuesday 5 September 2017. To take part in the consultation and share your views visit: https://bristol.citizenspace.com/bristol-city-council/yourneighbourhood/ and scroll to the bottom of that page for a link to the on line survey.

This is your chance to influence changes to services in your neighbourhood. However, if you don’t like some of the proposed options, then please use the “Comments” boxes to express your concerns and perhaps even add alternative options.

    Is it not possible to try and hang on to these services in some sort of form, maybe voluntary, until things improve? Hopefully there will be a change of thinking about austerity (live in hope). Once these facilities have gone there will be no going back. It really is an attack on vulnerable people, making their lives an opportunities worse. Not all disability is visible, and it can prevent people going out if there is not even a public toilet, it’s a basic human need, everyone needs to go! I realise that it’s difficult at this time, with difficult choices to be made, but its a constant wail. We are supposed to be the 5th wealthiest country in the world, where is all the money and how do the 6th, 7th and 8th cope???
