Neighbourhood Forum meetings

A Neighbourhood Forum is a public meeting that covers the ward you live in. It’s the place to go if you would like to raise any concerns or find out what is happening in your community.

You can meet local officers, or your ward Councillors, and have a chance to influence public consultations and decisions made by the Neighbourhood Partnership.

Neighbourhood Forums take place in most Neighbourhood Partnership areas. There's usually one Neighbourhood Forum per ward in the Neighbourhood Partnership area.

For forum meetings visit the Neighbourhood Forums page.

Highway budget for Neighbourhood Partnerships

Council funding is given to Neighbourhood Partnerships for local traffic schemes.

The  Traffic Choices website is a resource developed to help partnerships spend their money, track current activity, and explain the process. 

Neighbourhood Partnership Plan

Street champions

What is a street champion?

A street champion is someone who keeps an eye out in their local area reporting waste, highways, environment and other community safety issues.

Why become a street champion?

  • it's not time consuming and it will make a difference to your area
  • you can join other like-minded people to make the area cleaner and safer for everyone
  • you'll be given support to help you be an effective Street Champion

A well cared for and looked after street or local area is less likely to experience crime or disorder. Littering and graffiti will also become noticeably reduced.
