SPTM Big Local
About SPTM Big LocalIn December 2012, St Peter’s and The Moors was selected as one of the 150 Big Local areas in England to receive at least £1 million from the Local Trust over 10 years!
Big Local is an exciting initiative that’s funded by the Big Lottery Fund, managed by Local Trust, and designed to bring together the talent, ambitions, skills, and energy of residents, groups, and organisations who want to make their area a better place to live and work.
Our two year plan to transform the area was accepted by the Local Trust in December 2014 and since then, we have gone from strength to strength, engaging with more residents and reaching more people who have benefited from what we have to offer.
Our long term vision for St Peter’s and The Moors is to be “An inspiring community of supportive neighbours.”
To make our vision a reality, we want to:
enable residents to be supportive neighbours;
help residents to make ends meet;
make the area safer and cleaner; and
develop more things to do and places to go in our community.
A lot of people enjoy living in St. Peter’s and The Moors and there’s a strong sense of community. However, unlike other areas in Cheltenham where there are concentrations of people living on low incomes, our area has not previously benefited from regeneration funding.
This is why the SPTM Big Local project is a great opportunity for local residents to decide what changes would improve the area for the future, and how we can make it an even better place to live and work.
