The Green Party councillors for Clifton Down are Carla Denyer and Tom Hathway, after being elected in May 2021.
Clifton Down councillors Carla Denyer and Tom Hathway thanked voters for their support and said “We won’t forget who put us here. Renters, workers, artists, small business owners, older people, young people, LGBTIQA people, people of colour, students, disabled people, everyone who came together and believed in our positive vision for Bristol. We promise that the voice of every Bristolian will be heard in City Hall, especially if you feel like you’re not being heard right now.”
Hathway, newly elected this time, added, “I will do what I can to make the city proud.”
Their priorities are:
There are lots of great things about living in Clifton Down ward. It’s a vibrant place with great shops, restaurants and cultural venues, as well as quiet residential areas. We are lucky to have the Downs on our doorstep and our own local train station.
But Clifton Down also has its problems. As one of the most densely populated wards in the city, the cost and quality of housing – especially privately rented houses and flats – can leave a lot to be desired. That population density also causes issues with noise pollution, parking, fly tipping and congestion on Whiteladies Road.
Many residents often tell us they are concerned about citywide issues too; such as air pollution and protecting funding for public services like social care for the elderly; and global issues, especially climate change.
