Easton Neighbourhood Forum is usually called Easton Form and is a Registered Charity. Membership is open to anyone who lives or works in Easton. Easton Forum will develop a Neighbourhood Plan that gives Easton direct power to develop a shared vision for our neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of the local area. The Forum are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead. Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful
set of tools for local people to plan for the types of development to meet their community’s needs and where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.
The project aims to address a series of contemporary issues which can be identified in the existing area loosely categorised as ‘The Frome gateway’ which includes the Easton and St. Judes areas of Bristol.
In order to address the issues outlined in the Project aims the thinking is to design a proposal within the context of the site which will be small to medium scale. This project will either be hypothetical or be constructed, in order to drive this project forward we would be open to suggestions of what people what would like to see on the site.
The members of Easton Neighbourhood Forum are members of Bristol’s Neighbourhood Planning Network. The Neighbourhood Planning Network (NPN) is a self-help network of independent voluntary neighbourhood groups who are or want to be more effectively involved in the planning system in Bristol. Each group in the Network deals with development proposals in their own local community
