Back ground to our 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.
