Since 2000, any major planning permissions granted by the Coun-

wards improvements in the local area. Research by the Commu-
nity Association has discovered that much of this money has been
used on projects of little direct benefit to residents in Hotwells
and Cliftonwood and some of it remains unspent, years after it
was received.
These so-called ‘Section 106’ agreements are supposed to mitigate the impact of
new buildings on the surrounding community and can be used for a variety of im-
provements, depending on the scale of the project. Hotwells has experienced a
flood of new development in recent years and 7 projects in our area for which
planning permission was granted af-
ter 2000 have Section 106 agree-
ments with the Council .

Hotwells, Bristol, BS8 4QW
In discussions between the CA, our
local councillors and officers in Parks
and Planning departments it has now
emerged that, despite the Council’s
own consultation guidelines, there
has been minimal opportunity for
input from local people about how
the available funds should be spent.
Granby Hill –still waiting for highway improvements For example, over £100,000 has
paid for by the developer in 2006 been allocated to Parks Department
for Open Spaces although Hotwells

has almost no public parks managed by that department. In one case £27,000
from a site in Hotwell Road was spent on improvements to Brandon Hill. In an-
other example, £35,000 received in 2007 for Open Space remains unspent.
Chief Planning Officer, Zoe Wilcox, told members of the CA that the consultation
on possible improvements occurs through the responses made to Planning Appli-
cations. Planners will take comments from the public into account in deciding how
Section 106 funds should be allocated. It was pointed out that very few people
appreciated that letters of objection
would be used in this way and the
Officers’ assumptions about possible
benefits were not publicised and
could not be challenged by people
affected by the development before
the agreement with the developer
was finalised.
The CA suggested that letters invit-

birthdays and welcome three visitors; an old boy from Hotwells, Gordon Pugh who
gave us an interesting talk of life down under in Australia. He came with his wife and
sister.
About twenty of the group recently returned to their old school, Hotwells Primary.
They were taken on a tour around classrooms with headmistress Jenny Taylor.
Some of the group had been former pupils and were surprised and delighted at the
changes within the school. After the tour we gathered to look at photo albums and a
potted history of the school, with lots of ooh’s and aah’s when they recognised
themselves from sixty years ago or thereabouts. We were treated to cakes and tea
by mums from the PTA, much appreciated.
After some serious research last year we were able to reunite a forty two year old
lady who had been adopted as a baby, born in Hotwells now living in London, with

There are many activities that our clients love to get involved in. Sheila Kirsh one of

‘The day centre has helped me a great deal. I wouldn’t be without it. I enjoyed coming since
my husband passed away. I would be

they help me with. I would never be able
to do it otherwise’.
I have been a member of staff here
for 3 years and feel I am part of a
family environment. We, the staff
team, are very welcoming and we are
always willing to help, support and
promote our clients’ independence
and empowerment. It helps so many
of our clients become more inde-

clients, Nina Cope, enjoys participat-

‘The day centre is a means of getting out. Everyone is so kind. I look forward to coming. The
quiz keeps my mind active. I feel being sociable is an important part of staying independent.
This is exactly what I get from coming here’.
I have just recently qualified, in January, as a Counsellor, with support from Trinity

much, the fact that the clients have experienced so much in their lives, good and bad.
There is so much depth to our little community at Trinity, and the more you spend
