Council passes £5m to community to spend

New swing in St Agnes Park

In a move with all party support, Bristol City Cabinet has devolved control of money paid to the council by property developers.  Known as Section 106 money, it has been put under the control of Neighbourhood Partnerships to spend locally.

The money can be used in parks, for minor transport schemes or other developments agreed by the local ward councillors in consultation with local residents, businesses and organisations.

This has been talked about for years – it is great to see it finally happening! There will be no shortage of good ideas to put the money to use!
