Bristol City Council: Big decisions, tough choices – our five year challenge

Digital toolkit: “Big decisions, tough choices” – The Corporate Strategy Consultation


The council is currently running a major citywide consultation on our draft Corporate Strategy 2017 – 2022.  The strategy is a major document, not only setting out what we’ll do and how we’ll do it, but also presenting some challenging ideas and draft proposals to help close a £92m budget gap.

It’s really important that as many people as possible have the chance to give their views and contribute ideas.  We’re hoping you’ll help us spread the word by using the resources in this toolkit.

People can have their say by filling in a survey (available online at or in hard copy from local libraries or Citizen Service Points) or by attending one of our public discussion events at venues across the city (more details below). The consultation runs until Thursday 5 January 2017.

We look forward to you getting involved and thanks for your help!
