On 5th October we held our first stakeholder workshop looking at the prospect of moving to an elected mayor. The workshop brought together elected members, council officers, and representatives of the business and community sectors in the Bristol City Council area. The aim was to gather views on key strengths of existing governance systems as well as expectations and aspirations for future governance.
As an input into the discussion members of the research team offered brief cameos of mayoral governance elsewhere. These cameos have been reproduced here.
