Then why not get involved with your local Safer Stronger Community Group? It works with the Council, Police, Fire & Rescue and Health Authority to do just that.
This group has a say about the services that your community needs and receives. You can come along to a meeting, go on-line at: http://groups.southglos.gov.uk or call your Safer Stronger Communities Officer on 01454 868760.
Planning for Future Development - want to have your say on the South Gloucestershire Core Strategy, but need to find out more? The Core Strategy is the main planning document for guiding and managing new development and change in South Gloucestershire up to 2026. Its purpose is to identify where new housing and jobs will go, as well as protecting what is valued about the area. The Strategy will also identify what services, facilities and infrastructure (such as green spaces, roads, public transport, schools, shops and health centres) are needed and when and how this will be achieved.
Wednesday 28th July 12 noon – 3pm. An SSCG display will be available during the Coniston Fun Day at part of a number of events/activities being run during the afternoon.Â Information regarding Safer Stronger Community Groups and existing priorities will be available on the day.
