As you may have heard, Bristol City Council is leading the work to draw up a “One City Plan” to figure out how to get from where we are today to what Bristol needs to be in 2050. For more than a year Quartet has been helping a wide group of people from across the area to consider how aspects of the Plan might be funded.

Now we’re inviting people who may be interested in being part of this initiative to apply for the role of Governing Board Member of the Strategic City Funds Initiative.

How to apply
Would you know anyone who might be interested in being part of this Governing Board? A letter from Mayor Rees, details of the role and how to apply for the role of ‘Governing Board Member of the Strategic City Funds Board’ are all attached.

If you would like to apply for this role, send your CV and a 200-word statement on your experience and reason for interest to city.office@bristol.gov.uk by 12 noon on Wednesday 28 February 2018.

What is the 'One City Plan' for Bristol?

The City Office wants to mobilise business, universities, statutory bodies, and the Voluntary, Charity and Social Enterprise Sectors to work together and focus on shared city priorities. It wants the collective spend of these organisations to be targeted on priority areas such as community led housing, and tackling inequality within the city through enterprise and investment models.

City Hall is now working on a pilot to raise £10m of additional funding to invest in these areas, and are seeking match funding partners to help achieve this aim.

The One City Plan aims to use the collective power of Bristol’s key organisations to make a bigger impact by supporting partners, organisations and citizens to help solve key challenges such as driving economic growth for everyone.
