The Bristol Resilience Strategy is a dynamic vision for how Bristol could look 50 years from now. It provides a framework for action to protect the city against potential shocks and stresses it may encounter in the future.

The strategy aims to tackle some of Bristol’s major issues, including, traffic congestion, affordable housing, poor air quality and child poverty.

It also aims to give people more say in decisions made in local government. It was drawn up with help from local stakeholders and complements the new Corporate Strategy 2017-2022.

The future implementation of the Resilience Strategy will be overseen by the new City Office, which brings key stakeholders and organisations together from across the city to develop solutions to the issues that matter most.

By developing an ambitious, long-term direction for the city, Bristol joins other forward-thinking global cities in the 100 Resilient Cities Network, including New York, San Francisco, Rotterdam and Rio De Janeiro, who have already outlined their plans for the future.
