Just a quick update to say that the LGA Selector Panel have now met and agreed the final shortlist for submission to the Secretary of State. I'm pleased to say seven of Bristol's eight suggestions have made it through, including both of your shortlisted suggestions as highlighted below.
I do not yet know why there has been a change in decision regarding biodiversity data suggestion, but it is recorded as going through to the Secretary of State, which is excellent.
For further information, please see our updated webpage www.bristol.gov.uk/sca
The LGA have advised they will be in contact in the New Year to advise on the next steps, so once I know more I will let you know.
