What is You’ve got the Power?

It is a way of involving you in making decisions about the neighbourhoods you live in. You give us your suggestions and tell us why you think they will improve your local area.  Those suggestions are then shortlisted for customers to vote on. Winning projects are then delivered from a dedicated budget. Previous suggestions have included:
  • improving lighting
  • repairing or putting up new fencing
  • creating a communal garden
No idea is too big or too small!

    Northumbria Walk

Older residents wanted an additional handrail to make it safer for them going up and down the steps and to prevent people hanging around sitting on the wall.

    The Retreat

Residents had suggested that the lighting around the properties be improved. As the residents are older people they were finding it difficult to get about in the dark, particularly during the winter months.

    Harehills Tower

Residents suggested that the raised flowerbed be removed and replaced with a grassed or paved area. This would improve the appearance of the area and provide more useable space.
