The Bristol Civic Leadership Project: The impacts of mayoral governance in Bristol

Project Details


This project draws together different views from figures involved in the governance of Bristol, and the general public, to help address the functioning of the new mayoral model of governance so that the benefits of this form of urban democracy can be maximised. The aim is to have a positive impact on the behaviour of those within the networks of governance within Bristol from the public, private, and voluntary sectors. We also aim to reach beyond Bristol to other cities, and particularly to city authorities where DEMs are a governance option. As part of the project we are organising a pre-general election event in London, and a post general election event in Bristol.
