Local Information and resources

This website has been designed to provide what the Parish Council hope will be a valuable resource to find out more about what is happening within the Parish. As the site develops our aim is for it to become the local access point for information about the Parish Council and the services offered by the Local Authority.

We feel that it is a further resource for the community through improving communication, involving local people more in what is happening in Downend and Bromley Heath and engaging everyone in local issues by providing you with more information.

We also hope that the website is helping us to increase our communication links with the community. If you would like to advertise your event on the website, please contact the Parish Clerk via the ‘Contact Us’ button with details.
