Connecting Communities - An Overview
Our Connecting Communities programme is designed to help public services and local residents to work better together to address the areas of local concern in our communities. To achieve this, the Council has worked with partners, parishes and councillors to establish six Area Forums to streamline and simplify local engagement.
Our Area Forums are made up of Bath & North East Somerset elected members, parish councils, local groups and residents. The Forums set their own priorities based on an understanding of local needs.
The Forums also provide a useful channel for residents to raise concerns with partners such as the Police and Fire and rescue Service.
The Area Forum meetings are open for any member of the community to attend. At times the meeting agendas will have items included, which the Chair will limit speakers to members from the Forum only.
About the Forums
Connecting Communities Area Forums have been established for the whole of Bath and North East Somerset. The terms of reference can be found on the documents section of this page. The Forums are as follows:-
