Information about Locality Budgets 2019-20

For 2019-20, all Colchester Borough Councillors are allotted a Locality Budget of £2000.00 each. 

Ward Councillors can use their budget to initiate or support community projects or services. The budgets can be used for projects within a Councillor’s Ward, or otherwise for project which their constituents will benefit from.   

Councillors welcome contact from community groups; if you have a project that would benefit from funding support, please find contact details of your local Ward Councillors here.  

The deadline for 2019-20 Locality Budget applications is Friday 31st January 2020.  

A summary of expenditure from the Locality Budget will be published on this page throughout the year. This will include current details of proposals, commitments and actual expenditure by each Councillor. 

For any further information on the scheme please contact Siobhán McLeod on 01206 506596 or email
