Bristol’s Area Green Space Plans – Update on behalf of Bristol City Council
We are writing to inform you that Bristol’s Area Green Space Plans, part of the Parks and Green Space Strategy will be open to consultation from June 2010. The Knowle West Regeneration Framework project is informing these Area Green Spaces Plan for the Knowle West area, and details of how people can get involved will be given closer to the consultation date.
This has been re-scheduled from our intended January start, and there a number of reasons for this:
This timing will ensure the public and key stakeholders can consider the Parks and Green Space proposals in the context of the Council’s long term planning policies, currently being proposed as part of the Core Strategy and the Site Allocations Plan. The Site Allocations community involvement is now due to proceed in June and we are keen to take a ‘one city’ approach and remain aligned.
It is vital that we have a joined up approach so that you remain fully informed on the Council’s overall vision for the city’s future planning and development – and how our parks and green space continue to play a vital role in the fabric of the city.
The consultation, commencing in some areas in Bristol from June, will also mean that our emerging Neighbourhood Committees will have more opportunities to consider the proposals and determine the local community benefits the strategy could bring.
We are confident that the decision to hold the consultation from June will pay dividends with more local people better informed – and the final strategy documents will be of a high quality, setting out clearly the potential opportunities for the future investment and improvement of our cities parks and green spaces.
Your continued engagement in the process is extremely important to us and we hope you will continue to support us in participating in our future consultation.
