Your Fund Surrey
Published: 18 December 2020
Are you ready to THINK BIG?
Surrey County Council's £100m Your Fund Surrey launches today - designed to fund projects dreamt up and delivered by YOU, Surrey's residents and communities.
Ideas can be plotted on an interactive online map, with people able to comment, make further suggestions or simply give project ideas a thumbs up.
Residents should start thinking and speak to their local County Councillor, community groups, neighbours and friends about what could be achieved in their area and what ideas might already be being developed.
Full details and the interactive map can be found on the Surrey County Council website.
Councillor Mark Nuti, the Deputy Cabinet Member leading the Fund, said: “We want to really empower residents. “This is about every person who lives in Surrey – we want you to tell us what you need, what you want, what you’ve dreamed of that will make life and living in your area better.
“COVID has brought communities together and we want to build and expand on the good will and commitment we’ve seen to establish a legacy that we can all be proud of. “Whether it’s new community sports pitches, rejuvenating the high street, expanding charity premises, a new community centre, or a new urban beach or playground, we want to hear people’s ideas and aspirations for their place, the weird and the wonderful and the bigger the better.”
