Southdown Church Centre in Mount Road is set to host the third meeting of the Bath City Forum on Tuesday 26th April, with elected councillors and co-opted members coming together in a community venue for the first time.
High amongst the agenda items will be, finding out more about how “neighbourhood planning” could benefit the City.
Members will also receive reports from sub-groups established at its previous meeting, including one to examine how the “neighbourhood” part of money raised from development can best be spent on local projects.
Following on from the successful open session at the January meeting of the Forum, Chief Inspector Kevin Thatcher will again update the Forum on local policing matters.
To take the opportunity to ask any questions to Chief Inspector Thatcher, email firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Monday 25th April.
The update on policing begins at 5.15pm, with the main session (including discussion of neighbourhood planning) starting at 6pm.
Other items on the agenda include preparations for the Bath City Conference, which is now entering its fifth year, and which will be held on 1st July at the Guildhall.
Cllr Bob Goodman (Conservative, Combe Down), Chair of Bath City Forum, said: “I am delighted that we are able to take the Bath City Forum out into our local community.
“Whether the City progresses a neighbourhood plan or plans is an important issue for the Forum to discuss since planning has an impact in so much of City and neighbourhood life.
“Since I want the Forum to focus on action, I will update the meeting on work on HMOs and student housing since the last meeting discussed these issues. As with all City Forum meetings, the meeting is open to all to attend.”
