Charlton Hayes community consultation

Callicroft Place, Charlton Hayes, Patchway, Bristol (Bovis Homes)

Charlton Hayes residents are being given the opportunity to give their feedback on what it is like to live in a new development.

Some residents have been living in this evolving community for close on three years, while the development grows ever bigger. The consultation will look at issues such as the impact of parking, anti-social behaviour, the needs for a local school and a GP service, as well as how people feel about their new neighbourhoods.

The consultation is being conducted by Southern Brooks Community Partnership (SBCP), a local charity which has placed a community development worker in Charlton Hayes to work with local stakeholders and residents to build a vibrant community.

It will gauge residents’ experience of living in the new community as well as aid the development worker and other partners in delivering work and services to residents. To date, neighbourhood watch groups have been set up, there is a community newsletter, community events organised throughout the year and a resident forum is in the pipeline.

Visit to complete the consultation online (open until 26th August 2014). Paper copies can be obtained from Patchway Library or from the Patchway Town Council offices (both in Rodway Road). A consultation post box is located in Patchway library for posting the completed forms.

SBCP’s Charlton Hayes Community Development Worker Winsome Barrett-Muir said:

“Residents now have a direct way to voice their views – views that will impact on how I work and they can say what is good and what needs changing! A similar consultation has been carried out in other new developments and the outcome has made living on a new development better for those involved.”

Further information about the consultation can be obtained from Southern Brooks Community Partnership on 01454 868 570.
