Community Engagement Forums

Community Engagement Forums (CEF) in South Gloucestershire are about listening and responding to local people’s real issues. People in their communities know best what works for them and what their real needs are.

The CEF aims are:

  • to promote pride in the local area as a safe, thriving and pleasant place to live, work and play
  • to reduce crime, disorder and drug and alcohol misuse in the area
  • to empower local people to have a greater voice and influence over local decision making and service delivery by increasing the strength, capacity and engagement of the local community
  • to improve the quality of life of people in the local area by identifying community aspirations, needs and local priorities.

CEFs have been developed through working with various partner agencies including the Avon & Somerset Police, Avon Fire & Rescue, Public Health, town and parish councils and local organisations. CEFs are also about working in partnership with elected members. We aim to provide a platform for building strong and cohesive communities in which everyone, regardless of background, has a real sense of community involvement.

Within CEFs we also support groups who wish to make a positive difference and improve their own communities. We do this by supporting community engagement initiatives.


How to get involved with your local CEF

There are 14 Community Engagement Forums and each meets three times per year.

(Electric Scooter Trial) Temporary Traffic Regulation Order 2022
Notice is hereby given that South Gloucestershire District Council in pursuance of the
provisions of section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 as amended, The Electric Scooter Trials and Traffic Signs (Coronavirus) Regulations and General Directions 2020, and pursuant to the Order made by the Department of Transport, under s44 and s63(5) of the Road Traffic Act 1988, intends to make an order the effect of which will enable electric scooters (as defined in The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016) being used in a trial, to use any road or length of road in South Gloucestershire which is currently used by pedal cycles. This applies only to electric scooters hired from a company authorised and in accordance with the regulations made by the Department of Transport.
South Gloucestershire Council is satisfied that electric scooters being used in the trial in the said roads should be permitted in connection with the likelihood of danger to the public; (1) to reduce ambiguity as to where the aforementioned electric scooters can be ridden, and (2) to allow the aforementioned electric scooters to be ridden in safer areas of the highway. The order will be operative from 20 March 2022 for a maximum period of eighteen months.
