Westerleigh parish council consultation

WESTERLEIGH – Parish Council Consultation

South Gloucestershire Council is carrying out a review of the way decisions are made on local issues in your area, and we want to hear your views.  We want to know if you would like the name of Westerleigh parish council to change.

Why are we carrying out the review?

As part of the planning for this review we wrote to all parish councils asking if they would like to make any changes to their parish arrangements.  Westerleigh Parish Council has asked us to consult on changing the name of the parish council.

What are the options?

There are two possible options. They are:

Option 1: The name of the parish council is changed to Westerleigh and Coalpit Heath Parish Council

It is proposed to change the name of the parish from Westerleigh Parish Council to Westerleigh and Coalpit Heath Parish Council.  This would mean the name of the parish council would better reflect the identities and interests of the communities in the area.

Option 2: No change

This would mean that the name of the parish would remain Westerleigh Parish Council.

Consultation Topic
  • Democracy and participation
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
