Coronavirus (Covid-19): service updates, support and health advice.

Online planning, building control and licensing services will be unavailable between 2pm and 3.30pm on Saturday 29 January. This is because of essential maintenance.

This Christmas we are asking shoppers to consider local traders for their Christmas shopping.

On average households spend an extra £740 in December. If just 20% of this was spent on high streets in South Gloucestershire, this would be £16.3 million for the local economy.

Throughout December we will showcase different traders in South Gloucestershire, as well as promoting local Christmas events and activities taking place.

Shoppers and traders can help spread the word and join the campaign by liking and following our Facebook page and Twitter account and by using the hashtag #ShopSouthGlos.

Winners of our High Street bee trail still have time to enjoy a shopping buzz spending their vouchers with local traders

Thanks to all of you for following our Bee Trail this summer – it’s been a hive of photo activity and we’ve loved seeing the selfies of families next to the bees.

Winners have now been selected and we hope you enjoy spending your vouchers in local shopsyou have until 31 December 2021.

The trail took place from 24 July to 18 September 2021 and has created a buzz around the region as many families collected the 16 bees decorated by local artists and at the same time enjoyed what their local High Street has to offer, whether sampling food, local produce or facilities.

Thank you to everyone who took part.
