Filwood, Knowle and Windmill Hill

The Neighbourhood Partnership membership consists of six ward Councillors, resident representatives from the three wards, and representatives from key agencies, such as the Police and NHS Bristol.


The partnership meetings rotate between the wards, and the chair is drawn from the councillors from the ward within which the meeting is held.


The priorities identified for the Neighbourhood Partnership are:

· Continue to reduce levels of crime, drug related crime, domestic violence and antisocial behaviour

· Prioritise the raising of educational attainment, and aspirations across all school settings

· Reduce unemployment levels through increasing targeted support, local employment opportunities and skill

· Ensure that all waste management and grounds maintenance services are delivered to specification

· Improve the health of local residents including lowering rates of smoking and obesity

· Improve the number and quality of local facilities; especially those used by young people.

· Deliver the Knowle West Regeneration Framework and a more comprehensive retail offer for local residents

· Improving the management of traffic, the enforcement of traffic regulation orders and ensure good coverage of safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists

· Ensuring that there is good coordination between local voluntary sector organisations and groups

· Improving the accessibility, frequency and reliability of public transport

· Improve the effectiveness of NP communications so that there is greater knowledge and involvement in the Neighbourhood Partnership


 These priorities are contained within the Filwood, Knowle and Windmill Hill Action Plan which was agreed as a working document on 7 June 2011.
