Central Area Ward Priorities 2017/18

21 Jul

Every year each of the four Wards that make up the Central area will produce Ward Priorities. Councillors are refreshing their Ward Priorities for 2017/18. The refreshing of the priorities may result in small changes, large changes or no changes at all. The Ward Councillors with the support of the Locality Officer will outline 3 or 4 local priorities that the Councillors agree they will work together on.

The priorities have been informed by the local community, consultation, advice from service providers and local statistics, which all contribute towards outlining the Ward Priorities for each of the four wards in the Central Area.

The ward priorities will help to provide the legal justification for Councillors decisions about how they allocate the Ward Pot. They will also be used to inform local people about what their local Councillors and partners are working towards. Ward Priorities will be refreshed on an annual basis following local consultation.

Ward priorities 2017/18

Broomhill and Sharrow Vale Ward Priorities 2017~18

City Ward Priorities 2017~18
