Community Engagement Forum to discuss local issues in Bradley Stoke

Posted on Wednesday 21st February 2018 at 11:04 am by SH (Editor)

Community Engagement Forum for Bradley Stoke and Stoke Lodge.

The next Community Engagement Forum (CEF) for Bradley Stoke and Stoke Lodge takes places at 7pm on Thursday 22nd February, at Patchway Common Pavilion, The Avenue, Patchway BS34 6BD. This venue is located on the opposite side of the playing field behind the Brook Way Activity Centre / Bradley Stoke Surgery site.

Community Engagement Forums, previously known as Safer and Stronger Community Groups are about listening and responding to local people’s real issues. People in their communities know best what works for them and what their real needs are.

Items on the agenda for the meeting include:

  • Presentation/Q&A on local parking issues (e.g. parking on pavements or close to junctions) by Mark Pullin, strong, safer communities manager at South Gloucestershire Council
  • Issues with the new traffic lights and road system at the Aztec West Roundabout and the roundabout at M5 J16

Representatives from Avon and Somerset Police and Avon Fire & Rescue are also expected to be in attendance to provide updates.

Items from previous meetings that may be discussed again include speeding in Stean Bridge Road and graffiti and vandalism at numerous locations across the area.

It is anticipated that the recent surge in bike thefts in Bradley Stoke will also be discussed (statistics obtained by the Journal show there have been a further five thefts since 26th January).

    Some interesting “mitigation measures” for the Aztec West traffic issues were presented as having been “identified” by SGC at this meeting. See section 9 of the minutes:
