Ward Budget Scheme – Greenwich Council
Posted on 5th April, 2018
The Royal Borough of Greenwich has recently completed its Ward Budget scheme. The scheme provided £510,000 in funding for communities, divided as an allocation of £30,000 for each of the 17 wards. The scheme has enabled ward councillors to respond more directly to local needs and the priorities of their communities. This has encouraged the Royal Borough to engage closely with community groups and other partners.
The scheme has enabled councillors to fund projects that matter most to residents, ranging from improving the local environment with planting projects, purchasing new equipment for volunteer groups, play groups, scout groups, sport groups; to running local events for the community.
