Welcome from the Local Executive Member (Councillor Mahmood Hussain) and Service Head (Steve Salt).
Perry Barr is an incredibly diverse district in terms of people, cultures, religions, housing, industry and commerce, leisure opportunities and recreational spaces.
Councillors and officers will work together with the local community to identify local priorities and develop a District Delivery Plan. It will be the responsibility of the District Committee to ensure that the Delivery Plan is turned into actions that result in improvements to the lives of the people in Perry Barr.
Cllr Mahmood Hussain and Service Head, Steve Salt

Perry Barr will be holding its 2013 District Convention on Tuesday 10th December at Alexander Stadium. This convention will help in the production of a District Policy Statement and Development Plan that will be endorsed at the first District Committee in the 2014/15 municipal year. Last year's convention highlighted environmental issues, communication and engagement, young people and highways issues as the main priorities for the District. This year's convention will be used to check progress on these priorities, reaffirm or identify new priorities and identify how we can deliver on these priorities by working in partnership with our communities and other organisations.
If you would like to attend the District Convention please contact the District Office.
For 2013/14 all wards in the City receive a Community Chest allocation of £50,000. This allocation enables the wards to fund schemes which support ward and neighbourhood working or contribute to extending community engagement, cohesion and empowerment.
Projects supported through this fund must also demonstrate that they support one or more of the outcomes in Birmingham's Council Plan 2008-2013 and Birmingham's Community Strategy 2026.
Generally, any properly constituted organisation may submit a project proposal. You should first talk with the District Ward Support Officer to find out about what outcomes and locally identified priorities the Ward or District Committee is likely to support and the money that it has available.
For further information please contact Ken Brown, District Ward Support Officer on 0121 675 2349.
The Community First Programme is a national programme which runs over four years until 2015. 27 Wards in Birmingham have funding through Community First. The programme is independent of Birmingham City Council and is managed by a national organisation, appointed by the Government, called Community Development Foundation. Community First funding is distributed by a Community First Panel established in the Ward. A list of Community First Panels along with other information about this programme and how to access funding is available on the CDF website.
There may be a number of other funding opportunities available, such as Big Lottery Funding for example. For more information please contact Ken Brown, District Ward Support Officer on 0121 675 2349.
