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).
