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 current ward priorities:

  • reducing social isolation
  • improving facilities and activities for young people
  • a cleaner, greener ward
  • improving health and wellbeing
  • increased community involvement
  • tackling food poverty

Ward budget

Each ward has a budget to spend on local priorities. Ward Committees make recommendations to the Corporate Director of Children, Education and Communities on how the money should be spent.

Consultations and decisions on funding happen at ward committee meetings and through surveys and councillor surgeries.

Each ward has a budget to spend on local priorities. For 2021 to 2022 the ward budget allocation is £23,405.

The ward also receives a budget allocation for improvements to local highways. It's called the Ward Highways Capital Scheme and is a four-year programme formed from capital resources set aside from the main Highways Capital Programme. The amount allocated for 2019 to 2023 is £85,750.

Ward grant applications

Community groups and voluntary organisations based in the ward can apply for budget funding by making ward grant applications.

This ward is not currently inviting ward grant applications. Information about future ward funding availability will be published on this page.
