A project is underway in Willenhall and Short Heath to identify opportunities for local community groups to apply for funding.
This innovative new project is an opportunity for residents to get involved in decision making in the area.
Several community groups presented their ideas at Willenhall and Short Heath Area Panel on Tuesday, 4 March 2014.
Proposals include Pathways Upgrade, Fibbersley Park Nature Reserve; Willenhall Wild Nights, Black Country and Staffordshire Naturalists, Sell Yourself to Achieve, Get Up and Go, Let Us Entertain You – Social Nights, Strive to Achieve, Fun for All – Family Learning, Back to Basics by Pool Hayes Community Association.
The Panel are encouraging this project as a new way to identify how some of the local funding from the panel should be prioritised. This method is known as participatory budgeting.
They are asking residents to send in their views about the suggestions before the next panel arranged for Thursday, 20 March 2014.
