  Blagreaves Neighbourhood Board

The forum/board:

  • leads on behalf of the whole neighbourhood
  • agrees the priorities for the neighbourhood
  • decides where delegated Council budgets are to be spent
  • monitors performance
  • influences decisions that reflect the views of local residents
  • decides on the vision for your neighbourhood

The Neighbourhood Board received a budget from October 2019 and will receive a further budget from April 2020. This budget is to enable volutary and community groups (Non Commercial) to apply for funding for projects/events, that will both benefit and enable the community and its residents. If you would be interested in putting together a funding application for consideration of the board, please complete the form at the link below:

Blagreaves Ward Walkabout/Litter Pick dates for 2019/20

Ward walkabouts is an initiative to strengthen community spirit and build safer communities. This involves councillors, Neighbourhoods, Derby Homes and the Police, together with local residents leading a high profile and visible patrol. The idea behind this is to get back to traditional community values of local people looking out for each other and identifying any problems raised in the area. We will litter pick, greet and listen so come along and join us.
