General Information on Ward Annual Priority Setting meetings
Each of the 26 Wards of the city will hold 1 annual targeted event to identify
Annual events will be led by Ward Councillors in consultation with local
residents and stakeholders to share identified draft priorities and seek
validation and commitment for collaborative solutions with partners and the
community and voluntary sector.
Ward priorities will be agreed for the following 12 months and will inform
ward committee budget expenditure.
Annual events will focus on priorities for the ward and what we can do in
partnership, encouraging all stakeholders to be part of the response
Identified ward priorities will inform a work programme / action plan for the
ward and we will work directly with communities based on core themes of
active citizenship, building community capacity, behavioural change and
developing community partnerships.
Common themes will be considered where joint action plans can be
developed to avoid duplication and promote best practice.
