SevernNet Working

SevernNet Working Coastal Communities Fund Project

‘SevernNet Working’ is a partnership between Ambition Lawrence Weston, Avonmouth Community Centre, Bristol City Council, Knightstone Housing Association, SevernNet, S. Glos. Council and The Bristol Port Company.

The partners, many of whom have worked closely together for several years, came together in 2012 to bid for money from the Coastal Communities Fund. Following two unsuccessful attempts, on the 26th Jan 2015 the Big Lottery announced that SevernNet Working was one of the successful bids for support from the Coastal Communities Fund 2015/2016.

Our Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) project, which has been awarded £1.2m will:

  • get a shuttle bus in operation across Avonmouth and Severnside
  • improve the cycling and walking infrastructure between the A4 Portway Park and Ride and Cabot Park via St. Andrews Road
  • strengthen the provision of employment and enterprise support in Avonmouth and Lawrence Weston
  • further build the business and community cooperation across the area through SevernNet.

More information is available here.

SevernNet Working Coastal Community Team

The Department of Communities and Local Government announced today (17th July 2015) the successful partnerships across the country to become Coastal Communities Teams.

This includes the SevernNet Working Coastal Community Team which brings together partners including the Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area coastal villages and industrial estates. Our aim is to strengthen and improve relationships, and to develop an economic plan encompassing the SevernNet area.
