URGENT AND IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY
The council are proposing extending CIL funding to Bedminster Green and East Street areas which could mean £ms of investment for the area. Please read the short details in the link and if you are in support and wish to see this happen please email no later than tomorrow to firstname.lastname@example.org a simple statement along the lines of
'I strongly support the council's intention to extend CIL to the Bedminster Green wider area as described in the consultation details, given the significant changes and improvements required in the transport and highways arrangements and associated public realm works'.
EAST STREET VISION - on a related subject the BID is conducing a consultation exercise in relation to the future of East Street and will be in front of St Catherine's Place between 10am and 1pm tomorrow if you are free to drop by and share your thoughts.
GET INVOLVED IN THE BID
If you are interested in becoming more closely involved with the BID, we are an informal, friendly group, whose basic duties are to direct spending for the BID and Town Team. The BID Board meets 6pm on the first Tuesday of each month. Please do get in touch if you'd like to get involved.
Alternatively a marketing (and arts, culture) group meets on the last Monday of every month also at 6pm and a Built Environment Group on the first Tuesday monthly at 4pm (please see our calendar here). Alternatively if you prefer drop us a line or telephone us for a chat to discuss any ideas you have that you think the BID should be pursuing.
