Mansfield district is divided into 36 wards with each area being represented by an elected councillor.
Each ward has its own name and contains approximately 1,300 eligible voters.
Councillors have access to £1,000 to donate to community groups or projects in their wards each year.
The allowance is intended to help councillors to respond to community needs and to support projects for activities that benefit the communities they represent. The £1,000 annual allowance can be donated to more than one community project throughout the year. If you are interested in receiving financial help for a community project, please contact your local councillor.
