Derby City Council: Provide the fair and equal distribution of local neighbourhood funding

      Derby, United Kingdom

We, the residents of Derby, believe in fair and equal distribution of local Neighbourhood funding. This enables local residents and ward councillors, via their local Neighbourhood boards, to support community groups and to fund local improvements.

We oppose the decision made by Derby City’s Labour Council to cut local neighbourhood funding in Allestree (90% reduction), Mickleover (85% reduction), Littleover (60% reduction), Oakwood (55% reduction), Chellaston & Shelton Lock (25% reduction), Blagreaves (16% reduction) and Spondon (11% reduction) whilst other wards such as Normanton, Arboretum, Sinfin and Alvaston are being given funding increases of between 42% to 54%.

To:
Derby City Council
Provide the fair and equal distribution of local neighbourhood funding

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Less council tax will be collected in the over- assisted wards. So the extra funding gives a disproportionate amount back. Will the extra money give extra benefit to areas where there is greater chance of destroying or abusing the extra facilities. What do these area need that the council has to provide. Can we have an idea of this? Conversely, what don't the penalised areas need and can do without?
