A pot of cash is now available to fund community projects that will make a difference to local people or their surroundings.
Under Wyre Council’s Shaping Your Neighbourhood initiative, the borough has been split into six areas and each of these will be allocated £10,000 in 2014/15.
Bids for a share of the funding are now being accepted from community groups who can show that their idea will have a lasting and positive effect on their neighbourhood.
Fleetwood’s bids are being overseen by Coun Paul Treece-Birch, and other areas are Cleveleys, Thornton, Poulton, Rural East and Rural West.
The council is specifically looking for projects to address a local need, as identified in each of its locality plans.
Coun Peter Gibson, Leader of Wyre Council, said: “Very often it’s little changes that make a huge difference to community life, so we’ve set aside this money specifically for projects just like this. This scheme also gives our residents a real opportunity to get involved in local decision making.”

Closing date is May 31.
