SevernNet Launch

Posted by on Nov 16, 2012 | No Comments


Formerly known as the Bristol Port Estate and Vicinity Initiative, this Wednesday saw the official launch of SevernNet at the City and Port of Bristol Sports and Social Club. SevernNet, an initiative germinated in 2009 has grown into a network which has great potential to provide a wide range of benefits and improvements for businesses, organisations and the community extending from Royal Portbury Dock through Avonmouth, Severnside to Western Approach Industrial Park.

The primary aim of SevernNet is to “encourage sustainable resource management across the area (including materials, skills, assets, land, transport and infrastructure) through supporting and enabling collaborative and co-operative action by individual businesses and organisations and between businesses and organisations”.

It was great to attend and hear both how SevernNet is already facilitating change in the region and observe the sparks of ideas over more directed roundtable sessions with local businesses and organisations from very different perspectives and backgrounds working together to come up with innovative, inspiring and practical solutions.
