The Safer Neighbourhood Initiative Community Fund has been set up by the council to help fund practical and sustainable solutions to locally identified and evidenced problems relating to crime, antisocial behaviour and community safety in neighbourhoods across Norwich.
Please read through the guidance document to find out more information about the community fund and the application process.
All applications are currently being accepted up until Tuesday 31 January 2023.
Alley gate funding
The budget for alley gates for 2022/23 is nearly committed – subject to progress with existing applications. You are still welcome to submit an application but please be aware that it may need to go on a waiting list for next year. The budget for next year has not been agreed yet.
If you wish to apply for an alley gate or a repair to an existing alley gate, please check that the highway is not adopted before applying.
If the alley is adopted by Norfolk County Council, it’s unlikely that you will be permitted to install a gate.
If the alley is not adopted, then please complete an alley gate application form.
The alley gate must benefit more than one property.
The lead resident will be asked to get consent from other affected neighbours and will be responsible for obtaining written consent from them. We have drafted a consent letter to help you with this; the lead resident also needs to complete the letter as well.
Community fund (general) application
For anything other than an alley gate, you will need to complete the expression of interest form to start the application process.
Once your expression of interest has been acknowledged and approved by the safer neighbourhoods coordinator you will need to complete an the community fund (general) application form.
