Local Democracy The city council is the elected government of Bristol. It has one overall purpose: to improve Bristol and the lives of all its people, now and for future generations. The city council runs a very wide range of public services. It is the only democratically elected body working for all the people of Bristol, and it is the city's principal advocate in the region, the UK and Europe. Increasingly, the council achieves its goals by working in partnership with others, including Bristol Chamber of Commerce and Initiative and local action groups.
