'Give us a fair share of £97k'

PEOPLE living in the central part of Fishponds are calling on Bristol City Council to invest in community facilities in the area.

Councillor Nicola Bowden-Jones told a meeting at the Vassall Centre that the Frome Vale ward had been neglected for too long. 

She said that she and the other councillor for the area, Councillor Lesley Alexander, were united over concerns that their area is continuing to miss out.

The meeting was called to decide on priorities for spending money that has come to the council from housing developers, including £97,000 from projects in Frome Vale.

Councillor Bowden-Jones said: “It is not a level playing field. Some areas have better community facilities. We haven’t got anything.”

The meeting discussed a number of issues and agreed to hold another meeting on May 2 to talk about transport priorities, including the Hockey's Lane junction.
