Money is being made available to help clean up neglected spaces in the Selby area.. and you can have a say on where it needs to be spent!
Selebians are being urged to get involved in transforming their local spaces as part of the 'Team Up to Clean Up' partnership between the Central Area Community Engagement Forum and regeneration charity Groundwork.
They are currently accepting nominations for community regeneration projects to improve neglected spaces in Brayton, Barlow, Barlby Bridge and Selby.
The three selected development areas will each receive £3,000 to help make their project happen.
The chair of the Community Engagement Forum Cllr Ian Chilvers said, “Neglected spaces can be turned into attractive places for the benefit of the local community. The project is an opportunity to help local residents do something engaging, eye-catching or different that will create a real buzz in these communities. Members of the public can easily suggest an area or space that can be looked as part of the project - it's easy to do and could make a huge difference to the local area.”
Examples of projects that could be boosted by the forum's cash include: reinvigorating neglected space around a seating area, new planting to encourage wildlife or a 'grow your own' food growing project.
The deadline for nominations is Friday 16 February.
