Help White City Spend One Million Pounds improving the Area
Join the Open House at White City Community Centre
Residents living around White City are invited to attend a community day this Saturday, July 21 to encourage local residents to discuss ideas on what they would like to see happen in the neighbourhood.
The community day, called Open House, is being held at White City Community Centre in conjunction with the Big Local Lottery initiative which has allocated £1 million to spend on Wormholt and White City over the next ten years and is looking for residents' views on how that money should be spent.
White City has been granted pilot Neighbourhood Budget status by the Government to potentially look at ways of making better use of the public money that is available for the area and to ensure residents have far more say on how that money is spent.
‘Team White City’ is the public face of the Neighbourhood Budget, showing how residents, public services and councillors of all sides are working together to look at ways of improving the area.
Harry Audley, chairman of the resident-led White City Neighbourhood Forum said: “There is a huge amount happening in the area and there has never been a better time for local residents to get involved.
“Team White City is about local residents and local community groups first and foremost and how we can help set local priorities and help face local issues and challenges.”
White City is one of ten areas in the country to be granted pilot Neighbourhood Budget status.
Over the next month local residents will be asked their views on what services they do and do not use, what they would like to see happen and how involved they would like to be in their neighbourhood.
The Team White City/Big Local Open House will held at White City Community Centre, corner of India Way and New Zealand Way, from 12noon – 4pm.
You can also give your views by filling in the Big Local online survey.
