Information about Locality Budgets 2022-23

For 2022-23, all Colchester Borough Councillors are allotted a Locality Budget of £2000 each.

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

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

The deadline for 2021-22 Locality Budget applications is Monday 31 January 2022.

We provides a public record of all Locality Budget expenditure under ‘Council Spending’.

You can also access additional information on the web pages for Councillors, including the spend in previous years by each Ward Councillor. 

For any further information on the scheme, contact Keith Parker-Larkin on 07817 940632 or email
