Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill

The Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill Neighbourhood Partnership is an emerging partnership looking at strategic issues across the inner city. It is the coming together of two community partnerships in the area (St Pauls Unlimited and Easton and Lawrence Hill Neighbourhood Management Board) and is building on the strengths of these two groups to solve problems at a neighbourhood level.


The Neighbourhood Partnership is in its early stages and meets four times a year. It is a meeting that anyone can attend to observe but only members of the Partnership can participate in the meetings. Key issues that the Partnership is considering include drug dealing, protecting and maintaining green spaces, employment and training for young people and maintaining good cleansing standards on our streets.


If you are a resident of the area and have a concern or issue you’d like the Partnership to consider, your best course of action is to attend your local Neighbourhood Forum. These are ward meetings where residents can find out about things happening in their area and also raise issues one to one with officers working in the neighbourhood.


Neighbourhood Partnership and Forum Meetings


Neighbourhood Partnership meetings and Forum meetings work together to progress the issues raised in each Neighbourhood Partnership. If you have any suggestions about how the forums should be run or things you would like to discuss, please .
