Support new Council investment in Barham Park, Sudbury – sign the petition to support a community bid

As Sudbury’s three Labour Councillors, we have been working closely with the Barham Park Trust and the Council to secure new investment in Barham Park.

As a result of this, we’re supporting a bid to use Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL) capital funding to improve the park to enable more activities to take place for local residents.

This includes investment to restore the historic park buildings, in particular the exterior, to dramatically improve the amenities available to people living around the park.

If you support this bid, please either sign the below petition or drop us a quick email on cllr.thomas.stephens@brent.gov.uk, cllr.mary.daly@brent.gov.uk and cllr.saqib.butt@brent.gov.uk. We only need your surname and postcode to log your support.

(Please note: Unless you tick ‘yes, I want to receive updates’, your email address and contact details will not be used for any purpose other than confirming petition signatories with Brent Council. If you tick to say you want to receive updates, we will send you a quick email every time we publish blog posts on our website.)

On 1 March, Brent Council opened the latest round of applications for its Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL) fund. Applications will be open until 3 May 2021. This is a capital fund for community projects across Brent to help improve the local area. It can be used for a wide range of things, including local activities with residents, funding to improve community and charity buildings, and investment in our parks and green spaces. The key condition is it has to be one-off funding and not an ongoing cost.

Sudbury has been very successful in securing NCIL funding in the past, and we’re keen to help residents secure funding this time round as well. We’re closely working with the Council to secure investment in many parts of Sudbury. For example, we are also working on a bid to enhance green spaces across Sudbury and provide more activities in Vale Farm – so watch this space for further updates!

Following discussions with the Council and Barham Park Trust, we are very pleased to confirm that an NCIL bid is being prepared to improve Barham Park. The bid will particularly focus on restoring the historic buildings in Barham Park and enhancing the exterior of these buildings. This will help provide vital amenities for Sudbury residents and help meet key priorities for the borough, including making it easier for people to live happy and healthy lives.

To support this bid, please let us know either by signing the above petition or dropping us a quick email on cllr.mary.daly@brent.gov.uk, cllr.saqib.butt@brent.gov.uk and cllr.thomas.stephens@brent.gov.uk. In order to have your support logged you only need to supply your surname and postcode, but if you would like to provide more information on what investment you would like in Barham and why you would support further funding, this would also be extremely helpful in assisting the bid.
