At the budget meeting last month, Councillors were allocated a number of buckets of funding to use in their division. In order to use my allocation, I need to hear from YOU as to what I should focus on. At this stage I’m looking for ideas as well as specific projects, so if you have a good idea, but don’t live in Grange and Kingsway, please still suggest it. I can still use your idea, and/or pass it on to your councillor.
The funds are:
Highways Local – I have £20,000 to spend on Highways. Last year I mended roads in Naas Lane and Grange. Where should I be looking this year – where are your worst potholes? Having driven round the division yesterday, I’m looking at fixing potholes and speed bumps on Chatswoth Avenue, Windsor Drive and speed bumps on Grange Road.
Youth – I have £5000 to be able to put into a Youth oriented project.
Health and Well being – This pot consists of £40,000 to go into projects promoting healthier living. I have a few ideas but again keen to hear from you. This could be to buy equipment, upgrade a facility, put on an event, subsidise membership, help a club to get off the ground or grow. Do you have a club/idea/opportunity that could benefit from this which will in turn benefit the community? Get in touch.
