Bristol City Council completed a best-value review of sustainable development in 2004, resulting in a sustainable development government framework.
Among the components of the framework are: appointing an executive member responsible for sustainable development and social justice; a scrutiny commission for sustainable development and social justice; having a head of sustainable development and sustainable development services section; and a community strategy sustainable development action group.
The framework also includes a corporate plan, a Local Agenda 21 stakeholder strategy and action plan and an environmental management system that is being rolled out across the authority.
The sustainable development and social justice executive member is responsible for raising all the different issues at full council, holding meetings about development work and potential areas of concern, and acting as a ‘champion’ .
Bristol’s strategy has made high-level commitments to the city in the future, recognising the emerging threat of climate change and the expectations of people acrossBristolto share in a good quality of life wherever they work and live.
