Working with the Council

From the start, the group has worked with Bristol Council, which owns the land, and other agencies.  The Council has designated the site a “Community Action Zone” to encourage community-led innovations and improvements, and to respond to BIG’s initiative.   Recently, to put the relationship between BIG and the Council on to a more formal basis, the group has been developing a license agreement with the Council.   This will define more clearly the terms on which BIG operates on what is the Council’s land, and will set the basis on which BIG works with the various arms of the Council.  This is a necessary part of the evolution of BIG’s work.
