Welcome

Minutes:

 The Chairman welcomed everybody to the Westwood Social Club and introduced the Area Board members.

 

Members of the Bradford on Avon Town Council were welcomed, as were Parish Council representatives.

 

The Chairman set out his vision for how the area board members will work together, across party lines, sharing chairmanship of the area board and its committees. Also of how the town and villages would be given equal attention and resources in recognition of local demography. He hoped that politics would be set aside and that the local authorities could work together on common priorities, developing a programme of community engagement and involvement in key decisions and projects.
