Copmanthorpe Ward profile, priorities and funding
The Copmanthorpe Ward profile contains statistical information about the area and is updated regularly.
Find out more about the area at annual ward committee meetings or by contacting your Community Involvement Officer.
Based on feedback from residents, ward councillors have set the following current ward priorities:
- supporting older people
- supporting activities for young people
- community safety projects
Our Ward Councillor will focus his work and allocate the ward budget to projects which help address these priorities.
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.
For 2019 to 2020 the ward budget allocation is £17,662. This includes allocation of the Safer Communities Fund agreed on 17 July 2019 as part of the council’s Supplementary Budget Proposals.
Consultations and decisions on funding happen at ward committee meetings and through surveys and councillor surgeries.
