Frequently asked questions
- What is the Tang Hall Big Local area?
This is a question we get a lot! When the plans were drawn up for the area which would benefit from the Big Local funding, the experts drew a map. The map was defined by lots of factors, but essentially, our funding covers those who live and work within the area, or who are delivering projects which fundamentally benefit those who do. That map is readily available on our home page, but we know sometimes it is easier to check against a list. If you are trying to find out if you are covered by our funding, and therefore the many activities we run, please check if your street is on this list:
Bad Bargain Lane
Little Hallfield Road
St Aelred’s Close
St Hilda’s Mews
Tang Hall Lane
- What is Tang Hall Big Local?
THBL is a part of a National Lottery Funded programme where it has been given £1m to spend over 10 years to make Tang Hall a better place to live. It is one of 150 areas across England where local residents have been given the choice about how to best spend the money in their area.
- Why was Tang Hall chosen?
Whilst York is seen as a wealthy city, there are areas that have poor infrastructure and where local people have not been able to reach their potential. The area straddles 2 wards, Heworth and Hull Rd (see map). The aim was to work with our partners to help residents with making decisions for the benefit of the community.
