About

Bishopston, Cotham and Redland
Neighbourhood Partnership

The Neighbourhood Partnership (NP) is for everyone who lives, studies or works in our area. We aim to involve everyone in improving the way our neighbourhood works and in helping to shape the provision of services from Bristol City Council, and partner agencies such as the police.

Our Area

BCRNP map lettered v2

Bristol City is divided into 14 NP areas. The BCR NP area covers the 3 electoral wards of:

  • Bishopston and Ashley Down
  • Cotham
  • Redland

which include parts of the areas we know as St. Andrew’s, Horfield and Kingsdown.

What We Do

Some of the decisions about council services that were previously taken by the full council have been devolved to the NP. The members of the NP include all the ward councillors, representatives of local community groups, local advocates for specific issues and local residents.

Decisions are made at quarterly NP Meetings, which are open to the public. We hold quarterly Neighbourhood Forums, at which anyone can bring their problems and ideas for discussion, and we engage with the community through visits to schools and community groups.
