Resident Led Projects is a scheme that allows residents to bid for a sum of money up to a maximum of £10,000 to enrich the lives of fellow residents/neighbours.
In the past the Resident Led Panel have provided agreed funding for various projects eg landscaping, gazebos, decking, benches, awnings, canopies over external entrance doors, handrails, patio furniture, laying of patios and paths in communal garden areas, electric fans in communal lounges.
The Panel have also agreed funding for equipment in communal kitchens and installed fencing in certain areas to improve security, as well as working in partnership with other organisation for a wildlife area on the Mendip Estate.
