The 4CommunityGrowthYork (4CGY) project supports certain areas of the city so communities can take charge of their own development.
4CGY work to improve and maximise opportunities to stimulate the local economy in York, and the project includes:
- local residents
- public sector representatives
- community groups

- explore solutions
- provide access to ‘small step’ schemes, such as cooking classes
- provide contacts to support community development
- offer assistance with financial issues

Have your say with the 4ComunityGrowthYork survey
The project team is currently working on a Status Report to assess the project’s impacts so far.
It aims to evaluate the project from by gathering feedback through a survey as well as by conducting in-depth interviews.

Everyone is invited to participate in the survey, but we are particularly interested in responses from residents in the Clifton, Guildhall, Heworth, Hull Road and Westfield wards.
The survey closes at midnight on Sunday 19 August 2018.
Through the survey we want to:
- find out how well known the project is
- gather information on the impact of the project
- learn how we can improve our work
The Status Report will be published in September 2018.
