Community Cashback - Vote for Brentford
Help rebuild Rose Community Centre
The Borough of Hounslow has sucessfully submitted a bid to carry out 5 community involvment days across the borough from a fund made available by Criminal Justice Board and needs your help.
Community Cashback is a new scheme in England and Wales which gives local people a say in how £4million of recovered criminal assets (for example confiscated cash or property) should be spent in their communities.
Cllr Paul Fisher, the council’s executive member for communities - engagement & safety, said: “Community Cashback offers an excellent opportunity for us to respond directly to the communities’ needs, so I really encourage people to have their say on the local projects they believe would benefit from this fund.“Please make sure you have a say in how this money is invested in our future by registering your vote and supporting our bid.”
5 locations in Hounslow have been identified, one in each sector and all with the same aim, to improve community centres and youth facilities. This is an area identified by the local community that they would like to see addressed to improve community cohesion.
Please vote to ensure our local schemes go ahead. Go to Community Cashback, scroll down to Community Involvement Days, click on it to select, scroll down to the bottom of the page, enter your email if you wish, and click on the 'Have Your Say' button. It's not the simplest of pages. You have a week to register your vote as the deadline is the 18th September.
The five proposals for Hounslow are:-
Rose Community Centre, Brentford.
The Southville Centre
Sutton Bowls/Cricket Club
Kingsley Road Youth Centre
Dukes Meadow play area
