  • Your Priorities for Regent's Park

    by Catherine, over 3 years ago

    Have you got an idea that could improve your local area? Is there a big issue you think we should all be talking about? What would make you more proud of the area you live or work in?

    We want to hear about your priorities so we can work together to achieve something great for your area.

    For example, if a priority is helping adults and young people into work, we can discuss together how to make services more visible in your area. If a priority is improved environment (plants, art, seating), residents and ward councillors can discuss the use of ward budgets. If a priority is to support and provide social activities for elderly people, we could take ideas forward together.

    Start the right conversations by clicking here and and letting us know what your top three priorities are and why.

  • Ward Budget Projects in Regent's Park

    by Catherine, over 3 years ago

    Ward budgets are a dedicated and flexible resource with which to address specific local issues and priorities.

    Local councillors have been given an annual budget since April 2008 to spend on local projects in their wards, from 1 April 2014 this is £46,000 per ward per year. The budgets are intended to enable councillors to address local issues and priorities that matter most to residents. This could range from improving the local environment with new trees, flowers or improved paving, to purchasing new equipment for the local sports club, or funding activities for older residents.

    See below for recent projects.
