Ward budgets in your area

The highly popular ward budget scheme has made a welcome return, a scheme that gives each ward in the borough its own budget to spend on local projects.

Ward budgets

Get involved and help improve your area

In September 2011, each of the borough's 22 wards were given a budget of £15,000 (£330,000 in total) to spend on local projects and initiatives to benefit the local community.

An additional £220,000 was agreed at Cabinet on 19 June 2014 and a further £440,000 was approved at Cabinet on 12 February 2015, giving £30,000 extra per ward to spend on local projects and is in addition to the council's £1 million Chrysalis environmental projects fund.

How has the funding been allocated so far?

Funding criteria Ward map

What ward budgets can fund

  • The primary use of ward budgets should be for one off spends on material work, events or activities that have a maximum positive impact within the ward. For example:
    • supporting a local scout/guides group for a specific activity
    • supporting a community event such as summer or Christmas fetes
    • repairs and renewals of community facilities
    • purchase of new street signs or furniture
  • Ward budgets may be used for match funding.
  • Ward budgets can be used for either capital or a revenue proposal, as long as this does not commit the council to future funding or maintenance.

What ward budgets cannot fund

  • Ward budgets should normally benefit the wider community not a specific individual or small group of people.
  • Ward budgets can not be used to support the mainstream activities of a commercial or voluntary sector organisation.
  • Ward budgets that could adversely effect the environment or community within the ward.
  • Ward budgets can not fund retrospective applications eg you can not purchase equipment or equivalent and then submit an application for funding.
