My Stanley

Stanley Councillors Sir Merrick Cockell, William Pascall and Paul Warrick were elected earlier this year and after a busy year of City Living, Local Life projects last year and are getting ready for a new year of projects.

Councillors wanted to involve residents in identifying priorities issues that City Living, Local Life projects could address. So a co-produced survey was sent to all households in the ward. This survey found that the types of projects most supported by the residents were:

- projects involving local hospitals

- projects or activities for young people

- community events

- community kitchen gardens

- local history projects

With these resident priorities in mind, Stanley Ward Councillors supported the production of a leaflet for young peoples’ uniformed organisations and funded two garden projects in Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

£5000 was given to the Chelsea and Westminster Health Trust to trStanleyansform part of the Hospital’s garden into a community kitchen garden. Another £3000 was granted to create an internal edible garden on the Hospital’s third floor for patients and staff to enjoy.

A report outlining the findings of the survey can be viewed here [PDF] (file size 863kb).
