We have launched five consultations for how Bristol City Council could deliver local services with a reduced budget. The five areas to be considered are; libraries, public toilets, school crossing patrols, Neighbourhood Partnerships and Bristol Community Links. You can share your views on these by filling in the ‘Your Neighbourhood’ consultations and we ask that you comment on as many of these proposals as possible.
The proposed changes include reducing the number of city libraries to 10, closing street toilets and investing in a new community toilet scheme to expand availability, removing around half of the city’s school crossing patrols, changing the current Neighbourhood Partnership model, and making detailed changes to the way a suite of services for adults with learning disabilities and dementia operate.
Together the savings amount to just over £4.7m. Please take part in the consultation and share this with your family and friends
– you can always save it and come back to complete it later
