We are a voluntary group of local Heeley-ites interested in improving our area and community. We welcome council tenants and local residents living in Heeley (the specific streets we cover are listed below).
We are funded by the rent payments of local council tenants, the annual contributions of local residents, and also apply for grants to fund projects in Heeley.
Recently we have organised improvements to the Gregory Road park space, had noticeboards and a washing line installed in Kent Road flats, petitioned the council over changes to rent payments -- we are generally interested in pursuing projects that will improve Heeley as a place to live.
We work closely with local councillors and council staff to make sure Heeley tenants and residents are represented.
