Priority neighbourhoods 2023-2024

Westbury and Warminster have been selected as the priority neighbourhoods for 2023-2024. Our priority neighbourhood project teams have already been hard at work hosting several events and community action days in these two areas. Our work in these priority neighbourhoods aims to improve the areas and bring the community together.

The priority neighbourhoods project teams incorporate colleagues from neighbourhoods, involvement & communities, caretaking and supported housing.

What did the project teams do?
