The city's 28 wards are grouped into 7 Local Area Partnerships (LAP), each made up of 4 wards.

Each LAP co-ordinates a number of neighbourhood projects that tackle agreed ‘strategies’ priorities which contribute to the ward priorities, improve or integrate service delivery and increase community resilience. 

Membership of the LAPs and the various neighbourhood project groups reflect the priority being tackled, but generally include:

  • local councillors
  • public sector services
  • private businesses
  • the voluntary, community and faith sector

Each area has a Twitter and Facebook account, as well as a blog site. These help to promote local news, meetings and events in the area. 

£250,000 has been split across all 28 wards. The allocation for each ward is calculated using Indices of Multiple Deprivation.
