We consult residents about improvements in their neighbourhood. Typical projects have seen improvements to drying areas, bin stores and parking.
If you have an idea for an estate improvement, we will discuss this and any other suggestions to improve things in your area with you. If we think we can make your idea work, we will consult your neighbours so that everybody has a chance to have their say. We will let you know the result of this consultation and what action we are going to take as a result.
We may also be able to support you to improve something your local authority provides. We can do this by helping you to promote your idea – for example, if it’s about improvements to the road and pavements.
If you have an idea for a community project we will support you if it is an interest that is shared or agreed by other people in your neighbourhood. For example, there are a number of community gardens up and running in GreenSquare neighbourhoods.
If you would like to start a local group with aims to benefit the local community, we can help you to do that.
We work with other agencies and charities to improve services and opportunities for our customers. This can mean finding funding; working together; promoting their activities; or asking them to provide a service in one of our neighbourhoods.
We support a number of youth groups and part fund youth activities and educational programmes. These young people have helped us by making planters and benches.
We sometimes work with Community Payback to provide improvements to communal areas.
We have supported local organisations set up to provide welfare advice, low cost furniture, employment or training opportunities.
Please let us know if you we can help a group near you. This might be by promoting your work, part funding some community activities or connecting them to organisations who might be able to help.
Contact us either by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning us 01249 465465 and asking to speak to your housing officer or our community involvement team.
