Let’s get together to discuss important local issues

A new neighbourhood planning group is launching in Knowle to give residents the opportunity to discuss and feedback on important local issues.

The group has been set up by residents Michele Tedder and Aileen McLoughlin in response to various proposed developments in the area, including the Broadwalk Shopping Centre redevelopment and the new secondary school and community hub development in Daventry Road.

Michele said: “Many areas in Bristol have a neighbourhood planning group, however, there is a gap in Knowle and there is a lot going on.”

The planning groups act as a voice for the local community in responding to planning applications, meeting developers and planning officers and achieving better community involvement in planning decisions. The first meeting is being held on June 11, 7pm at Knowle Community Centre (Annex Building).

Anyone who has responded to the recent Broadwalk Centre planning application or is interested in the proposals for the new secondary school and community hub may be interested in attending.

Representatives from the Broadwalk Redevelopment Community group and Windmill Hill and Malago group (WHAM) will be attending. Local councillors and the Totterdown Residents Environmental & Social Action (TRESA) have been invited.

You can turn up on the night, or confirm your attendance via Michele Tedder, tedder.michele@yahoo.co.uk / 07799 866131 or Aileen, aileenpmcl@gmail.com / 07906 568994
