Subgroups

Neighbourhood Partnerships throughout Bristol are now being transformed as part of the Council’s need to reduce spending due to Government cuts. Members of the St George Neighbourhood Partnership are planning to form a new organisation – The St George Community Network – to take over some of the roles of the Partnership.

There will be a public meeting to discuss our ideas and get your views on what the priorities of any new organisation should be on Wednesday 21st June.
Note this has been postponed from the planned date of 17th May due to the election.

These pages describe how the subgroups worked in the Neighbourhood Partnership, it will be up to the new organisation to decide on its structure in the future.


Much of the work of the Partnership is undertaken within Subgroups. The Subgroups each assist with specific areas of work within the Partnership. By concentrating on specific issues and areas the Subgroups are able to spend more time considering issues than would be possible within the main meetings of the Partnership.

Membership of the Subgroups is from a wider network of people than attend the main Neighbourhood Partnership meetings. As well as this enabling a wider range of people to be involved in the work of the Partnership, it also enables those with a specific area of interest or concern to use their knowledge and skills to help the Subgroup address relevant issues.

Each Subgroup has a constitution (approved by the Neighbourhood Partnership) and is coordinated by a ‘Champion’.

The Subgroups are:

* Environment Subgroup
The Environment Subgroup was set up by the St George Neighbourhood Partnership (SGNP) to work with Bristol City Council to preserve and enhance the appearance of our area, its green spaces, trees and streetscene.
Champion: Rob Acton-Campbell

* Planning Subgroup (not currently meeting)
We are hoping to create a Planning Subgroup, the purpose of which will be to consider major planning appications affecting the St George NP area.
If you are interested in helping to restart this Subgroup please contact the Partnership.

 

Other groups / committees:

* Neighbourhood Committee
The Neighbourhood Committee is made up of the four Councillors for St George; its meetings form part of the Neighbourhood Partnership meetings and it is an “area committee” of the City Council.  It is through the Neighbourhood Committee that the Partnership is able to have a say on the spending of Council funds in St George.
