Community Assembly Consultation

The Government funding cuts next year together with increasing pressures means the Council has to save £50 million during 2013/14.

Proposals being considered affecting the future of Community Assemblies include:

  •  The Community Assemblies structure being replaced with a Ward based structure and area based infrastructure.
  •  The Discretionary Grants budget for the city being reduced from £1.6 million to £300,000 per year shared between Wards.
  • Put £280,000 per year into a new team of Council Officers and stop funding Community Assembly and Locality Management teams at a combined cost of £995,000. This Team would be centrally managed, linked to groupings of wards and support the area based structures.
