Changing governance

In a referendum held on 3 May 2012, the citizens of Bristol voted in favour of a Directly Elected Mayor (DEM) to lead the city by a margin of around 5,100 votes. From a turnout of 24%, 41,032 people voted in favour of a mayor, while 35,880 voted against. The election of the new mayor takes place in November 2012. It follows that, in a very short period of time, the governance of Bristol will be changed dramatically.

This innovative project aims to gather information on stakeholders’ views prior to the Mayoral election and both monitor and contribute to the development of Mayoral model of governance.
