Neighbourhood Budget - Vote for your favourite Project

Listed below are proposals we have received over the past few months. If you would like further details on the individual projects please click on the project name. Those projects unsuccessful in the previous months' voting but that have received more than 2% of the votes have been carried forward. Those who received less than 2% have been removed from this round of voting and the project lead has been contacted. It is possible to reapply but please be sure to encourage your supporters to vote.

For each voting period all votes are reset to zero and we encourage any supporters to vote again for their favorite projects.

Projects that have been unsuccessful in a previous month, or that decide to seek alternative funding can request that their project be removed from the website at any time. In these circumstances, the project will be removed and any votes that had been received up until that point will not be counted when voting closes.
