This is a brief summary of how the getting started was agreed and spent. There is a budget allocation of £20,000 for Getting Started which is an addition to the £1m Big Local money. Initially we set up a steering group of residents and partner organisations on the estate, there was a majority resident on the steering group. We consulted on how best to utilise the money to build awareness and engage local residents in the wider Big Local Plan.
An Area profile was creates during the ‘Getting Started’ phase of Big Local which included consultation with over 750 residents.
