Acomb Ward profile, priorities and funding
The Acomb Ward profile contains statistical information about the area and is updated regularly.
Consultations and engagement with residents take place in a variety of ways, for example, at ward committee meetings and team meetings. These forums also involve decisions on funding in order to allocate the ward budget in response to local needs and priorities.
Based on feedback from residents, ward councillors have set the following priorities for 2015 to 2019:
- reducing social isolation
- improving facilities and activities for young people
- a cleaner, greener ward
- improving health and wellbeing
- increased community involvement
The ward team will focus their work and allocate the ward budget to projects that help address these priorities. For 2018 to 2019 the ward budget allocation is £19,160.
The Ward is not inviting grant applications currently. Information about future ward funding rounds will be available on this page.
To find out how the ward budget was allocated, see ward funding decisions.
