I have asked my team to meet with the organisations and individuals who have big ideas for Bristol and its people. I want to make sure everyone who has a good idea has a chance to be heard.
My vision is for a city where nobody is left behind, and I am always keen to hear people’s ideas and solutions to help us achieve this collectively. We are making space for people with a big ‘offer’ for the city to ‘ask’ for the support to deliver it, either from Bristol City Council or other city partners.
The sessions will be an opportunity for people to table their ideas, plans and projects and potentially get support to see how they can be taken forward by the city. The discussions will be professional and constructive – they’re about sharing ideas and solutions, rather than specific complaints or cases.
How to get involved:
If you have an “offer” to make the city and want to explore it with my team, write to Mayor.Office@bristol.gov.uk summarising your idea in no more than 300 words. The deadline is the 30th of November, with the session taking place in mid-December. Once reviewed, my team will shortlist and invite individuals and representatives to a session to discuss their idea in more detail.
Your submission should show that the project is positive for the city, deliverable and something my office can influence. I look forward to hearing your ideas and solutions.
