Local Committee Review

Closed 11 Mar 2019

Opened 11 Feb 2019

Overview

As a council we want to ensure residents have a chance to influence decisions in their local area.

We want the chance to understand what would be the best way for you to get involved?

One of the ways we currently do this is via Local Committees which are currently a key part of the Council’s mechanism to enable residents to engage and influence the decisions of the Council and their commitment to the 2011 Localism Act.  

To find out more about the current Local Committees please visit the Local Committee page.  

Why We Are Consulting

Local Committees currently aim to:

  • give communities a bigger say over decisions affecting them

  • be more responsive to people across the borough and allow you to influence local services

  • provide Public Realm funding - this has included replacing old playground equipment, investing in biodiversity, purchasing new benches and fencing, and installing traffic calming measures.

  • provide funding from Neighbourhood Grants of up to £1,000 to support local projects which benefit the local community.

  • provide funding from the Event Fees & Charges Grant to help offset the cost of organising community events

We are seeking your views on how we can best involve residents in decisions affecting their local area; to best meet the needs of the community and engage with a wider audience.
