Westfield Ward profile, priorities and funding
The Westfield Ward profile contains statistical information about the area and is updated regularly.
Based on feedback from residents, ward councillors have set the following priorities for 2018 to 2019:
- improve the local environment and take pride in Westfield
- reduce isolation
- improve activities for young people
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 £29,210.
In 2018 community groups and charitable organisations were invited to apply for grants of up to £500. All received applications that met the funding criteria were entered on a ward newsletter that was distributed across the ward in February 2018 giving residents an opportunity to have a say on grant applications and other planned projects. Applicants were notified of the outcome of their application in April 2018.
The Ward is not currently inviting grant applications. 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.
