The ward Councillors Jon and Lucy are looking at a way of engaging with the groups and people of Windmill Hill and working with you to help set local priorities. To discuss this, the date for your diary is Wednesday 28th February 2018 at 7pm and the venue is the Victoria Park Baptist Church on the corner of Sylvia Avenue and St Johns Lane.
Why do we need this? Windmill Hill is a great area with many thriving local groups, individuals and organisations working on their area of interest. Its larger than you think running all the way from the Bath Road across to Marksbury Road, takes in several fabulous parks and open spaces, has some major roads running through it and some large planning decisions being made on areas close to the ward boundaries, the councillors want to bring you together on common themes to help decide local priorities that where possible Community Infrastructure Levy and s106 funds can be spent. The greater the representation across the ward the more accurate local priority setting will be whether that is improvements in local parks, challenging and engaging in local planning decisions, safe places to walk and play etc. etc.
If you are interested in coming along let your Councillors know – it just helps us make sure we have enough chairs out on the evening – but you can just pop on down. Or if you have ideas on how it could be run or set up please get in touch as going forward this is your space.
