The current community board is in the process of deciding terms of reference and a framework for working in the future.
We expect this be completed in Spring 2013. The Community plan will then be agreed by the Community Board and then sent to with the Big Local Trust.
The Big Local trust must agree with the Community Plan before any money can be distributed locally.
At the Greenmoor public meeting on 3 October 2013 it was agreed that a "quick fix" environmental project in the area was needed.
A number of agencies and local groups in the area and Bradford were invited to put forward ideas for quick fix environmental improvements.
At one of the first Community Board meetings it was agreed that Bradford Community Environment Project would asked to complete this project. The group intends to carry out an environmental education project locally and produce a environmental sculpture using recycled materials.
Councillor Joanne Dodds and local businessman Kantilal Mistry have teamed up and launched a Scholemoor and Lidget Green Business Forum – work is being carried out to invite business and agencies to this forum.
The Big Local team is really excited by the results of research being done in our area. Seven volunteer researchers have met for training and Corine Campbell has been working on the community plan which should be ready in January 2013.
So far, Corine has interviewed 150 people and received 200 other interview questionnaires back!
