My Neighbourhood Forums give you the opportunity to have a say in your local community.
We want you to tell us what you think would make your neighbourhood a better place. Come along and...
- Meet other people from your area
- Influence decisions on how money is spent
- Share your ideas for local improvements
- Be a part of making things better
Your Neighbourhood Forum will meet four times a year in a place near you - and you're invited. You can get more closely involved in helping to shape decisions that affect your area by coming along to your local forum and speaking to your councillors.
Forums are an hour long, from 7pm to 8pm, and are very informal - you can drop in, or stay for the whole session. Your local councillors all come along, as do police, fire, and other organisations. Decisions aren't made at the forums, but feedback from residents is used to identify local priorities and direct resources.
Each forum has a Neighbourhood Plan which has been produced directly from consultation with residents. Forums have 'Core funding' to support the delivery of these plans, and local councillors decide how to spend this. They also have an influencing role in the allocation of larger sums of money, such as fees paid by developers to support local improvements.
