Henleaze Community Forum


Forums are important for the community and complement the work of the Society and other local organisations.  They are apolitical and any contact details you provide are not shared with other organisations/individuals unless you give your permission. 

All local residents and traders are invited to attend the meetings.  The aim is to offer everyone an opportunity to raise and discuss local issues. 

The Police and Westbury-on-Trym & Henleaze Councillors attend most of the Forums; they answer questions on the night or take away action points.

The last Forum took place  on Monday 27 November 2023.  We hope to announce a date soon when the Councillors who were elected in May 2024 and our Neighbourhood Police Team can attend a Forum.

The Henleaze Society’s role

The Henleaze Forum is not part of having membership of The Henleaze Society. 

Bristol City Council encourages local communities to meet at least twice a year.  A local organisation in each of Bristol’s wards is invited to facilitate the meetings.  Given the size of Westbury-on-Trym & Henleaze ward, Forums are held in both Westbury-on-Trym and Henleaze.  The Henleaze Society has agreed to facilitate the Henleaze Forums.

The data held to issue agendas and notes about the Henleaze Forum is separate from information held on The Henleaze Society’s database.   As such, The Henleaze Society’s Privacy Policy does not apply to data held solely to issue Forum notes and agendas.  If you have any comments about the Forum, or want to be added to the database to receive agendas and notes of meetings, please send an email to  henleazeforum@hotmail.com

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

CIL is a pot of money that can be used through Bristol City Council to make improvements to our local neighbourhood; s106 funds have largely been used to purchase replacement trees.  In 2022 a successful application was made for funding 3 replacement ‘street’ trees.  If you want to know more about CIL/ s106 go to www.bristol.gov.uk/people-communities/funding-local-projects.  A video is available on the same webpage. This can be viewed here.

The Henleaze Society (as the facilitator of the Henleaze Forum) will work with members, the Westbury Park Community Association and local residents to prepare funding applications and to prioritise these with our local Councillors.  If you have any suggestions, please let us know.
