Vote to allocate Ladywell Assembly funding

Cllr Ute Michel writes:

Following the decisions made by the Ladywell Assembly on allocating the Mayor's Fund, there is also £9,000 to be spent from the annual Locality Fund for smaller scale projects. Eight proposals aiming to involve the community and improve the area have been submitted, and there is an online poll for residents to vote for their favourite projects.
The projects are:

1. Noticeboard cabinet for Brockley Cemetery
2. Street trees for Brockley Road
3. Equipment for Hilly Fields Community Bowling Green
4. Plaque to commemorate the original Lady Well
5. Contribution to Brockley Max Festival
6. Social enterprise “Vessel Works” for young people
7. Ladywell Walking Tour leaflet
8. Contribution to Saturday School

Surely £9000 could pay for nearly all of those,How much does a notice board cost.

Shouldn't the street tree's be supplied by the Council ?

Even if your assumption about how far £9,000 should go was right, stating that the money should pay for "nearly" all projects kind of answers your point. The cost of a noticeboard depends on how nice and appropriate or tatty and temporary it is. The one for which funding was requested is a freestanding cabinet, not a wooden frame on a wall.

In an ideal world lots of things would be supplied by the Council, including for example sufficient and interesting youth provision in Ladywell ward. In reality this was underfunded for years, and considerable effort and funding from sources other than the Council's budget has gone into this in the last few years, including the Locality Fund and recently the Mayor's Fund. Street trees are in the same category, as are other things on the list of proposals.
