Sheffield City Council: Burngreave Area Panel (prepared by Kieron Williams, Area Co-ordinator).

Area Panel Local Action Plan 2004-2006

The Burngreave Area Panel has been given nearly £400,000 of Neighbourhood Renewal Fund money to spend on improving the quality of life for local people over the next two years.

This is extra money from Government for local authorities in the most deprived areas of the country. Its purpose is to help them deliver better outcomes for their most disadvantaged communities. The Panel has set out how it will be spending this money in its Local Action Plan (LAP).

This is based on what people have been telling us needs to happen in the area. We have also been working with other organisations in the area to see where we can join forces and make sure this money goes as far as possible. Over the next two years this money will be helping to fund:

  • A community chest fund to support local groups.
  • A free property-marking scheme for residents to help tackle burglary.
  • A dedicated family support worker for the area.
  • Bring out your rubbish days across the whole area including recycling and assisted days in key areas.
  • A community cohesion officer to build links between all parts of the community by organising events aimed at celebrating the areas diversity and cultural heritage.
  • An advocacy worker for the Fir Vale community based at the Pakistani Advice Centre.
  • Positive activities for young people and work to increase their voice and influence.
  • A FIDO machine to clean up dog fowling in our parks and playing fields.
  • Improvements to the streetscape, local shopping centres and community spaces including floral displays and festive lighting.
  • A development Worker to support the Fir Vale Forum.
  • Support for the Active Burngreave strategy to help people adopt healthier more active lifestyles.
  • Support for the development of the Burngreave Childcare Strategy.

Copies of the full Local Action Plan are available from the Burngreave Area Action Team (see next page for address).
