Ward profile, priorities and funding
The Heworth Without 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, ward committee meetings and ward team meetings. These forums also involve decisions on funding in order to allocate the ward budget in response to local need and ward priorities.
Based on feedback from residents, and statistical information and intelligence from local partners, the ward councillor has set the following priorities for 2019 to 2020:
- improve street maintenance
- improve and support community provision
- reducing social isolation and supporting projects which help to reduce social isolation
The ward team will focus their 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.
The ward budget for 2019 to 2020 is £7,110.
The ward also receives a budget allocation for improvements to local highways. The amount allocated for 2019 to 2020 is £5,081.
To find out what has been spent so far, see decisions on funding. You can find out more at your annual ward committee meetings or by contacting your Community Involvement Officer.
Consultations and decisions on funding happen at ward committee meetings and through surveys and councillor surgeries.
