Darley Neighbourhood Board

Your local Neighbourhood Board is made up of local councillors, residents and representatives from community organisations and public services.

The 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 voluntary 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:

Consultation on Parking and Traffic

For some time, a number of residents have been raising concerns regarding parking in the local area. A number have asked that a survey of residents is undertaken to gather views on the parking and traffic issues in the area and whether there is support for a permit parking scheme on your street.

Working in partnership with a group of residents on a number of streets in your Ward, we are undertaking this consultation to gather your views and experiences.

Local residents will be distributing surveys to relevant households over the next few weeks.

The areas we are surveying are as follows:
