Big Local

Grace Mary to Lion Farm

Save area

The Grace Mary to Lion Farm Big Local area is within the borough of Sandwell in the West Midlands. It covers five separate natural neighbourhood areas, crossing the boundary of three council wards and two parliamentary constituencies.

Although the ‘lines on a map’ might be challenging, there has been a strong partnership approach to Big Local, predominantly led by community, voluntary and faith sector organisations. There has also been political support from MPs and local councillors.

The next stage of the programme will be focusing on getting more residents involved through creative use of communication, outreach to local groups and the provision of small grants to local organisations.
