Apply for ward budget funding

An initial budget of £46,000 per year is allocated to each ward. This rolls over each year across a 4 year electoral cycle. Councillors can spend it flexibly on projects within their wards that:

  • benefit local residents
  • are managed by an organisation or club (individuals alone cannot be funded)
  • are not against council policy, are unlawful or would adversely affect the council
