Joint Parish Groups

Joint Parish Groups are groups containing members from parishes in and around Yate. The groups consider and discuss matters of common interest in our local area across all local parishes, such as cross boundary issues and initiatives. Other examples of subjects discussed are cycleways, the youth forum, traffic management, gardens and other areas of interest.

All committees specific to Yate Town Council can be viewed on the Town Council Committees page.
