Arley and Ansley have £1 million to use

Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1 million to make a massive and long term positive difference to their communities. It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.

Ansley Village, New Arley and Old Arley have been selected as 1 of the 150 areas to receive at least £1 million to make a lasting difference to our three villages.

Get involved in our Partnership

It is residents of our three villages who will decide how the money is used so we need local people to get involved. We have a Partnership Board that meets on a monthly basis to drive the project forward and we’re always looking for new members to join. Email Jim at nwbiglocal@wcava.org.uk or call him on 01827 718 080 for more information.

Where are we currently at?

Local Trust, who manage the Big Local project, require all 150 areas to travel along something called the Big Local Pathway. We are currently coming towards the end of our first 2 year Plan and are starting the consultation process for our next Plan.
