The Caledonian ward partnership puts members of the local community in touch with Islington’s elected local councillors to let them play a greater role in influencing decisions and services in their area.
Each of Islington’s 16 wards has its own local partnership. The partnerships are a way for people and organisations in a ward to get involved, meet their councillors, share their knowledge and to help tackle local issues.
Team Cally facilitates the Caledonian ward partnership by organising regular steering groups and twice-yearly public meetings.
A senior council officer has been assigned to each partnership to support councillors in addressing local issues.
Ward Improvement Plans
Each partnership in Islington has agreed its own local Ward Improvement Plan which sets out how funding and grants will be spent in each area.
These Ward Improvement Plans (WIPs) have been developed for each ward in consultation with ward councillors. They mean investment priorities can be agreed in advance so that funding can be directed, where possible, towards the highest priority schemes in that ward.
The plans allow local residents to become more involved in identifying and prioritising schemes, with ward councillors and Ward Partnerships able to participate in an ongoing review.
You can submit a new scheme proposal via Islington Council’s website.
To contact your ward councillors, who are always keen to hear your views on how to improve the area, come to one of the partnership’s public meetings.
The King’s Cross Environment community website is another way to engage online on local issues as well as find out what’s happening in the area.
If you have any questions or you would like help, contact the Bemerton TMO office
