Welcome to the web site of Portskewett Community Council.
Portskewett, Sudbrook and
Leechpool is a small cluster of villages in a rural setting with huge historical
importance. Whether visiting the Roman Camp or the Severn Tunnel pumping station
in Sudbrook, the old ferry to Bristol and Lave Net fishing at Black Rock, King Harold’s
Field at Portskewett or the Standing Stones on Heston Brake at Leechpool we have
much to offer.
The Local Community Council acts as a voice to all who live in our
area, we represent your views and opinions when dealing with the County Council and reviewing planning
applications and we ensure the area is clean, safe and tidy.
We have had recent success
with improving safe routes to schools with the implementation of traffic calming
measures, and we regularly arrange community events such as fun days, bonfire night,
royal wedding and jubilee celebrations.
The local Community consists of over 900 houses
and nearly 2000 residents with very different views, needs and aspirations and we
work hard to represent you and assist you as your council.
