BIG SOCIETY FUNDING SUCCESS – PARISH PLAN
Glen Parva Parish Council is pleased to announce that it has been successful in its financial bid to the Leicestershire County Council's Big Society Fund in order to undertake a Parish Plan Project in association with the Leicestershire Rural Community Council.
Leicestershire County Council launched the fund last year. Its main aim is to help communities to help themselves as part of the Government Big Society programme, which encourages local people to take responsibility and participate in local initiatives to improve their area.
The Parish Plan will engage and involve the local community as a whole and residents of Glen Parva will be provided with the opportunity to participate in the project in order to help identify and prioritise local issues of concern and work together to solve the problems raised.
The formation of a parish plan will help to prioritise local resources and ensure that all members of the local community are empowered to take part and improve local facilities and provide necessary evidence to ensure that appropriate services are provided. This evidence will help to seek external funding for improvement projects identified and will also assist in engaging the local community and endorsing community identity and community spirit.
If you would like to be involved or find out more information, please attend this event in order to help improve your local community. For more information telephone 0116 2771450 or see the web site www.gppcouncil.org.uk
