The future of our Community Centre

The future of our Community Centre

On 28 June, we held a meeting at Sea Mills Library to kickstart discussions about the future of our Community Centre, closed since 2019. Tim Huntley from the council’s Housing Delivery Team outlined a proposal to turn the site into a mixed-use development of affordable housing and community space, inviting initial feedback from local residents. Over 60 people attended the meeting, making clear that there is a strong need for a community building that is fit for purpose, with many questioning whether the existing building could be brought back into use. As a group, Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle Together…

Sea Mills Square under threat again – can you help?

New appeal on proposed 5G mast.  Last year, Bristol City Council planners rejected plans for an 18 metre 5G mast and large cabinets on Sea Mills Square.
