There are 8 Area Committees each covering a
particular geographical area of the City (usually 2 or 3 wards).
The membership is all the ward
councillors from that geographical area. Meetings are open to the public and appointed
local community representatives are invited to attend and
contribute, including appointed representatives of Nottingham City
Homes tenants and leaseholders.
The Committees meet to discuss issues of local
concern and how to improve their local area, and are consulted on
changes which could affect the area. They oversee the spending of their Area Capital
Fund. Allocations from individual or
joint Ward Councillor Budget allocations to support local ward
initiatives are noted. This funding may
be divided between funding grants to community and voluntary sector
organisations or funding other local community initiatives.
Area Committees usually meet 4 times a
This Area Committee covers Aspley, Bilborough and Leen Valley wards.
