Slough Borough Council’s Community Development Team will work with you to:
Slough Borough Council’s Stronger Neighbourhoods initiative looks to enhance existing areas and improve services with the support of local residents. Driven by insight and co-production, the project aims to better understand the needs of residents, and take action with them to improve three key areas of Slough; Trelawney Avenue, Chalvey and Foxborough.
Led by the community development team, and building on the success of our work in Manor Park in 2017, this approach will be to bring together community partners, organisations and council teams to work together to develop local assets, solve local issues and create more engaged and cohesive communities.
The first stage of this initiative is community surveys running in Trelawney Avenue, Chalvey and Foxborough. If you are a resident in one of these areas please take part and complete the survey online via the links below. As a thank you for making your views known, every survey received back by the closing date will be put into a prize draw to win family skating tickets to the Slough Ice Arena.
Talk to us about what you can do in Slough’s community centres and how we can support the development of your ideas.
