Big Local is resident-led and we have engaged and consulted with residents and local stakeholders every step of the way. We have great support from a number of agencies, including officers and members from Leeds City Council who have been right behind us from day one, and from our Big Local rep.

Our Big Local plan very much reflects our needs and aspirations as a community, as evidenced in the various phases of consultation we have carried out, from household surveys to informal chats with local teenagers. As such we are confident it is focussed on the relevant themes and issues within the area. We feel that this investment will help to shape the community and make it an even better place to live.
If you would like to know more about the plan or get involved please get in touch.

Together, we really can make a difference to where we live!
