Two years of community clean ups and bulb planting culminated in the launch of a peoples’ survey and website all aimed at helping people in Belle Isle and Middleton to love where they live.
The project, led by Cllr Kim Groves, aims to celebrate the many strengths of the area and to get residents on board to identify and tackle problem issues. Speaking at the launch Cllr Groves said:
“It’s all about people, it’s all about place. It’s all about what the people of Belle Isle and Middleton want in their community.”
There is a rich and diverse range of community organisations in the area and they have been invited to pledge what they can contribute to support the initiative. 23,000 residents will be surveyed so they can have a direct input into a Peoples’ Plan for the area. The survey will start in the Raylands, Westwoods, Stourton Grange and East Granges, but if you can’t wait forms are available from St Georges Centre.
You can also have your say on a new Love Where You Live website. Tell people about your events, nominate your local community superhero and volunteer to get involved in local activities. Go to lwylbm.wordpress.com
