Improving your local community

Community Boards are a new initiative that bring the council, groups, organisations and local people together to look at local issues and find ways of improving them together.

Community Boards will:

  • represent the voices of local people
  • capture thoughts, ideas and suggestions in new ways
  • enable local conversations about priorities
  • identify needs within local communities and work to produce creative solutions
  • explore areas of interest
  • influence how decisions are made and public services are delivered

Five public meetings will be held each year. At these meetings, funding is allocated and feedback will be shared on the plan of action. Minutes and agendas will be published online.

Find your local community board

Each board is supported by a dedicated coordinator who will make links with people in the local community to make sure information is shared and local views and ideas are heard. They will make sure the local people, groups and organisations feel connected with the boards and the council, developing working relationships across the community board area.
