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
If you intend to apply for ward budget funding, your project must finish delivery by 31 March 2022.
