Westbury-on-Trym & Henleaze


With effect from the local elections in May 2016, the previous individual Wards of “Westbury-on-Trym” and “Henleaze” ceased to exist, as a result of the Boundary Changes proposed by the Boundary Commission in 2015. The majority of both of the “old” Wards were included in the “new” Ward of “Westbury-on-Trym and Henleaze”.
However, due to the size of the new Ward and for administrative convenience, it was found easier to retain the existing individual Forums in each “half” of the new Ward.
The next quarterly Forums will be:
Henleaze – Thursday 7 September, 7.00pm, at Henleaze Library
Westbury-on-Trym – Wednesday 11 October, 7.00pm, venue TBA
