The Community's 'Vision' for the Fund is unveiled
3000 residents, groups and businesses got involved. The question was simple: What could this fund do to bring real benefit to the local area? The results are in and we’ve prepared a short animation for you to see what your ideas have created – an exciting vision for the future, with very clear priorities. View it here.
In 2015, we’ll begin the work to set up the new independent body which will manage the fund. We’ll be working to make sure that it is ready to start work when the project starts operating late in 2016. It’s now time for communities, businesses, entrepreneurs and organisations in the area to start thinking about what projects they want to deliver to start to turn the community’s vision into a reality. Find out more at a drop in session later this year. Register your interest in the fund here and we will be in touch in the coming weeks.
