City Councillors have two budgets they can use to support local communities

Each city councillor has an annual ward budget of £1,500 to spend in their ward on projects that provide economic, social and environmental benefit to the local community.

Funded projects and events may be run by:

  • Local community and voluntary groups
  • Charities
  • Schools
  • Other community interest organisations

Councillors also have a CIL (Community Infrastructure Levey) budget of £2,500 to spend on local projects.

Below are the projects David has spent both his ward member budget and CIL budget over the past three years.
