URGENT VOTING REQUIRED – IF YOU HAVEN’T VOTED YET – PLEASE DO SO ASAP & PLEASE TELL YOUR NEIGHBOURS – YOU HAVE UNTIL THE END OF MARCH!
Further to our post on the 3rd February 2014. We need as many people as possible to vote on spending of these local funds. Please take 5 minutes to help us improve the state of the pavements on Schubert Road.
The council is asking local people how money raised from a charge on developers should be spent. The Wandsworth Local Fund (WLF) can be spent on neighbourhood projects.
Take the survey at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/WLF Alternatively you can request a paper copy of the form by ringing (020) 8871 6084 .
Neighbourhood projects it could be used to fund include:
Improving roads, pavements and parks, including installing safety improvements like new lighting.
◾New secure cycle parking
◾Better public transport.
◾New bus shelters and countdown information.
◾Building new schools or expanding existing ones
But it cannot be used for projects which require on-going spending.
The council is consulting local residents, neighbourhood groups and associations, school pupils and students, local businesses and those who work in the local area.
Once the results are in they will be shared with ward councillors, local voluntary and community organisations, council departments, Transport for London and other agencies. They will be invited to help shape proposals that would meet your priorities.
These proposals will then be assessed for cost and feasibility and late this year local people will be asked which of the proposals they would like the WLF to support.
Take the survey at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/WLF. Alternatively you can request a paper copy of the form by ringing (020) 8871 6084 .
You have until the end of March 2014 to tell the council your views.
