The Big Local DY10 area covers the majority of the Broadwaters & Greenhill Wards in Kidderminster. It's a diverse area that historically has suffered from high crime, high unemployment and a negative reputation. There are pockets of social housing across the area along with pockets of private rented accomodation. There is a strong sense of community and a history of community action.
The area incorporates three 'natural' neighbourhoods which are the Horsefair, Broadwaters & Greenhill. Despite close geography these three distinct communities are very different.
This project does not seek to turn them into one community or neighbourhood, rather it will try to 'join them up' in such a way that they have a joint voice and a joint approach to issues that affect them all.
From the community research conducted by the Steering Group throughout the area and other public documents, a BigLocal DY10 Profile has been compiled. For more information and to download click here
