St Pauls Neighbourhood Forum

Residents and business across St Pauls are supporting the launch of a new St Pauls Neighbourhood Forum in Bristol! The Forum will be bringing together people from all parts of St Pauls to explore the past, present and future of the area, and to lobby for a local vision to help development be to the benefit of our communities here.

St Pauls is a diverse neighbourhood. It is the historic heart of Bristol's African Caribbean community, and the site of many nationally significant events including the annual St Pauls Carnival, the 1963 Bristol Bus Boycott and the 1981 St Pauls uprising. Today it is home to a vibrant, diverse and changing population. Right now, developers are coming into the neighbourhood and carrying out developments with no ability for local people to govern this development.

We can change that, by bringing together local residents, business and stakeholders together to ratify a neighbourhood plan to hold developers accountable to the local community.

Bridging Histories and Cognitive Paths are just two of the many groups, residents and business

es supporting launch of the new neighbourhood forum. You can see all the work that has already been done towards a St Pauls Neighbourhood Plan by visiting the website of Cognitive Paths, here.
