The Town Council is committed to enhancing and strengthening the communities that fall under Emersons Green Town Council.
The council has representatives on a variety of external bodies including: Emersons Green Library Users Group, Safer Stronger Community Groups, The Avon Local Councils Association, the Town + Parish Council's Forum.
The council has delegated powers to consider and make responses on planning applications, and this happens every other week at planning committee meetings.
The Town Council also manages almost 90 allotments off Dibden Lane.
It ensures the protection of Emersons Green Common, Muddy Lane, Windsor Place, Vinney Green and Rodway Hill Common as well as looking after other open spaces and verges throughout the local community.
The Town Council consists of 16 Councillors and is served by the town clerk and two part-time assistants. It has an office on the first floor at Emersons Green Village Hall. If you need to visit the office, please ring in advance as the office is not always staffed.
Much more information may be found on our website.
Council meetings are held monthly (except August) in the Jefferies Room in Emersons Green Village Hall.
Members of the public are welcome to attend and a public forum is set aside at the beginning of each meeting to hear the views of electorate. Committee meetings take place in the office, and are open to the public.
Full Council Meetings are on Thursdays at 7pm, and there is no meeting in August.
Community Engagement Forums are about working together to help improve your neighbourhood.
Regular meetings are held for all local residents and organisations to discuss local issues and community projects.
The meetings are attended by representatives from South Gloucestershire Council, Avon and Somerset Police, Avon Fire and Rescue, Town and Parish Councils, and local organisations.
Everyone is welcome, you can raise any improvements or issues you may have, or simply come along and listen to what is being discussed for your area.
The more residents that attend, the better the group can reflect the needs of the local area and help influence decisions.
