Ideas To Improve Our Neighbourhood!

DSC_9157
Our ward councillors have a small budget – £9500 – which they can draw on to make recommendations for ideas that improve and brighten up local neighbourhoods. The details are here …
The sort of projects that are covered are things like the planting of trees, community gardens, neighbourhood events. It would be great if we could come up with some ideas and make a bid for the funds. The deadline is the end of February.
Let us know what you think and we can get the process underway.

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

On the ‘Council Plans and Documents’ page are two campaign guides from the London Cycling Campaign about LOW TRAFFIC NEIGHBOURHOODS – what they are, how to campaign for them and some mythbusters about what happens to traffic if you block a rat run. If you’ve got the time they make interesting reading – they’re a useful guide for residents and local policy makers.
