This is an invitation to the West of England Joint Spatial Plan and Transport Study Consultation Event taking place on Friday 27 November.

As you may be aware, the four councils within the West of England have recently launched two major consultations on the future of the area.
Bath and North East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council and South Gloucestershire Council are working together to produce a Joint Spatial Plan and a Joint Transport Study exploring where 85,000 new homes, employment, infrastructure and the required transport links could be built over the next 20 years.
We are keen to hear the views of local communities, other organisations and stakeholders as to where future homes and transport investment should be located.
We are inviting you to this important consultation event to be held on:
Friday 27 November 10am to 1pm
at the Conference Centre at the University of the West of England
The event will include a range of presentations, facilitated workshops and an opportunity for you to discuss these challenges and have your say on these important issues.
Hot and cold drinks will be available throughout the event. The site is accessible via public transport and car parking is available on site.
