Many thanks for contributing to the recent consultation on our Parks and Green Spaces Strategy. There has been a record number of responses – more than 3,000, not including people who signed petitions or attending drop-in sessions. Your input is very much welcomed and I can assure you that the points you raise are being carefully considered.
I wanted to update on the next steps. Officers have worked through the consultation responses and drawn up final proposals. These will be discussed firstly at an extraordinary meeting of the council’s Quality of Life Scrutiny Commission that will be held at the Council House on Wednesday 15 December (10am).
This replaces the scheduled discussion that was planned for Monday December 6. The change in date allowed officers more time to work up their final proposals following the huge level of public interest.
On the following day – Thursday December 16 at 4pm – the Council’s Cabinet will meet as planned to decide on the final plans.
Members of the public will be able to attend both meetings, make public statements in the usual way or watch proceedings on the webcast through the council’s website – www.bristol.gov.uk/webcast.
I would like to thank you once again for your contribution to this important consultation.
