Mossley Hill Councillors want ideas from local residents on projects to improve the local area.
Each ward gets a pot of funding to spend on developing the area and supporting the local community and this year councillors want to give local residents the chance to decide what that funding is spent on.
All local residents are invited to submit their suggestions and ideas for projects and then a team of representatives from local residents associations and groups will get together and decide how the £3,000 pot will be divided up.
Councillor Emily Spurrell said: “We wanted to do something different and give residents a chance to shape what we do in the ward and make sure we are prioritising the right issues for residents. We really want to hear about any thoughts or ideas residents might have that would support their community.”
Previous projects funded by the Councillors include children’s reading events, free book scheme, clean up events and community gardens.
Due to the limited funding, infrastructure projects such as road repairs can’t be considered.
If you have ideas or proposals on how the funding should be spent, email firstname.lastname@example.org with as much detail as possible.
But be quick – you only have until 3rd November to get your ideas in.
