Firs and Bromford

Save area

Firs and Bromford are proud to have produced their first Big Local plan.

The plan has been formed based on the thoughts of residents in the area using a range of methods to find out people’s priorities through activities including:

  • community researchers consulting with their fellow residents
  • drop in events during the summer and at Christmas
  • the ‘Young Voice’ festival for teenagers
  • running special conversation events in our local primary schools
  • drawing together those who work with children and young people in our community
  • running a special planning workshop in October 2012 which helped to allocate funding to our themes, prioritised actions, and gave people the chance to be involved or lead as they wish
  • showcasing the emerging plan during the early part of November 2012, giving people a further chance to share their thoughts and indicate how they would like to be involved.

Firs and Bromford Big Local vision:

‘We wish to develop our community into a place where all feel welcome, all feel that they belong and all feel that they can flourish, whatever path has brought us to live together.’

Residents of Firs and Bromford have identified six themes which the plan will now deliver against:

  1. strengthening and celebrating community
  2. environment and community safety
  3. skills, lifelong learning and financial inclusion
  4. health, wellbeing and social inclusion
  5. children, young people and families
  6. older people
