About Ideal Bradford

We are changing the way Bradford on Avon is run. We want our Town Council to be more engaged with the people who live here, more open about what it does, and to be more efficient and effective.

Ideal Bradford is a group of independently-minded local people who stood in the May 2017 Town Council elections. We believed that we needed a huge change in our local decision-making, and that party politics gets in the way of getting the best for Bradford on Avon. All of our candidates were elected to the Town Council, and we currently have a majority on the Council of seven out of twelve councillors.

We don’t have a party position on national political issues. We just want the best for Bradford on Avon, and to make it easier for our community to make itself heard. Party politics have long impeded our town’s progress, development and democracy, and we think it’s time for a change. We come from varied backgrounds and we have a broad range of perspectives, but we’re united in our commitment to our town and our belief in positive change for the whole community.

We want to hear your view, so please have your say and make sure that you join the mailing list to hear about public events and keep up to date with the Ideal Bradford movement.
