In addition to all the above we play a major role in representing the voice of the city. We have made representations regarding, for example, the Local Plan and Structure Plan, rail services, postal services, parliamentary constituency boundaries.
We are currently producing a Neighbourhood Plan for the city based on employment and economic development issues.
The City Council is the only council serving the city area specifically. Its viewpoint can at times therefore be different from the District and County, and an important part of the Council's role is seeking to ensure that the needs of the city are given due prominence.
