Information about Locality Budgets 2020-21

For 2020-21, all Colchester Borough Councillors are allotted a Locality Budget of £2000.00 each. 

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. This year the money is available early, to provide local councillors with a means to help their communities with COVID-19 related challenges.

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.  

The deadline for 2020-21 Locality Budget applications is Sunday 31st January 2021.  

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 Siobhan.mcleod@colchester.gov.uk
