There are 7 Area Committees, each covering a
particular geographical region of the City (usually 3 wards). The
West Area Committee is constituted by the Aspley, Bilborough and Leen
Valley wards. All of the councillors from the wards in the
designated region are members of the associated Area Committee,
which appoints local community representatives to attend and
contribute to its meetings. These include representatives of
Nottingham City Homes tenants and leaseholders.
The Committee meets to discuss issues of local
concern and how to improve its local area, and it is consulted on
changes that could have a local impact. It oversees the spending of
the Area Capital Fund and notes the funding from individual or
joint Ward Councillor Budgets to support local initiatives.
The Committee usually meets 4 times each year
and its meetings are open to the public.
