Last chance to have your say on Bristol’s COVID-19 recovery plan

There’s still time for Bristol residents and community groups to give their views for ‘Your City, Our Future’ – a project to shape the city’s Coronavirus recovery plan

The Bristol City Council survey which opened on 5 August will close on Wednesday 9 September: http://www.knowlewest.co.uk/bristolians-to-help-shape-the-citys-recovery-from-covid-19/

This is looking to find out how people’s lives have changed – and what can be learnt from how citizens have travelled, worked and spent leisure time over the past few months.

The council says all responses will feed into the project and help decide the future of the city as it rebuilds following lockdown – and continues to adapt to the challenges posed by COVID-19.

It wants to hear from all neighbourhoods to make sure the recovery plan represents the views of “all Bristol people” on “how to build a healthier, fairer and more sustainable city.”

Currently there is a shortage of responses from young people aged under 25, black and minority ethnic residents and some areas across Bristol – which in the south of the city includes Filwood, Hengrove and Whitchurch Park and Stockwood as well as Hartcliffe and Withwood.

The ‘Your City, Our Future’ survey will be followed by a Citizen’s Assembly – where 100 people representing every part of Bristol will come together to tackle the city’s most important issues.
