Ward community funding

Each ward is allocated a yearly budget which can be used to support projects that bring benefits to the community within the ward.

Community meetings

Our community meetings take place every quarter, with the intention of bringing the council and the communities within our wards closer together.

The meetings give residents the opportunity to work with us, and other agencies such as the police and NHS, to identify local issues and improve their neighbourhoods. All ward residents are welcome to attend.

Each ward meeting has small amounts of funding to support projects which benefit the local community.

The documents at the bottom of the page explain the types of projects which can be funded, who can make a proposal and how this can be done.
