Our Big Local area is Northwood which is in Kirkby, Merseyside. We have around 7000 people living in our area, with a good mix of young, old and families.

We’ve been talking about how we can all work together to make Northwood an even better place to live, work and play. Those conversations led to the production of our Big Local plan. It is based solely on what people who live and work in Northwood have said is important to them. The conversations were about finding out what is great about Northwood and celebrating this and how we could spend £1m over the next 10 years to make it better.
