Neighbourhood Forum

The Avonmouth and Kingsweston Neighbourhood Partnership brings together local councillors and local residents, community groups, and representatives from public services including Bristol City Council, local police and NHS Bristol.

The role of the Neighbourhood Partnership is to get things done in response to issues raised by local residents.
The Avonmouth and Kingsweston ward councillors form the Neighbourhood Committee, which makes decisions about how to spend devolved council budgets at Neighbourhood Partnership meetings.

Everyone has a part to play

In order to help the Neighbourhood Partnership to reflect the needs of the neighbourhood as a whole, they need to hear the voices of the wider population through Neighbourhood Forums and other themed local meetings
Neighbourhood Forums are public meetings held four times a year for each of the 4 villages in Avonmouth and Kingsweston. These meetings offer an opportunity to take part in discussions about spending devolved budgets and to raise local issues such as crime, antisocial behaviour, litter, fly tipping as well as many other things in the area. By raising issues at a Neighbourhood Forum, public service agencies, such as the council and police can take direct action to address them and report back on the progress at the next meeting.

If you have information about any crime, phone the police on 101 or you can call anonymously to the independent charity CRIMESTOPPERS 0800 555 111.
