Councillors in Holland Ward are prioritising communication with residents following the recent elections.

The recent changes in ward boundaries have brought new areas to Holland and plans are underway to officially welcome them to ward and update them on recent developments. It will also include a request for the new residents to contact the councillors and get involved in their local community.

Communication will also see a new ward survey carried out to ensure your local priorities are noted. The results of the previous ward survey, which was carried out a few years ago, can be found here. The aim is to identify priorities for the local community and possibly hold a public event to translate these priorities into actions.

At present there is one new project idea in progress which is focussed on environmental improvement in Russell Road. For a full list of funded projects to date, please check the ward spending archive.

Through prioritising communicating with residents new and old, Councillors are aiming to encourage new ideas and project bids over the next few months. So, if you live in Holland, and have a great idea or project which can improve where you live, tell us about it! Funding applications can also be completed on our website.

Holland has lots of community actitivies running, and we're also always keen to hear from you. See more about Current Community Projects
