City unveils 2022 Neighbourhood Decision Making idea proposals and introduces advanced voting

The City is excited to unveil the list of ideas Londoners can vote for through the 2022 Neighbourhood Decision Making program. 

This year, 230 ideas were submitted by residents, neighbourhood associations, student groups and Londoners looking to make their neighbourhoods even better. Of the ideas submitted, 78 have been turned into project proposals which Londoners can vote on from June 18 to the 25.

Londoners of all ages can vote for up to three ideas in Central, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast or Southwest London.

“From playground upgrades to murals and community parties to outdoor exercise equipment, Londoners submitted a diverse range of ideas to enhance their neighbourhoods,” says Karen Oldham, Manager of Neighbourhood Development and Supports. “Residents, whether they are new to London or too young to vote in a civic election, are encouraged to cast their vote to determine how a portion of the municipal budget will be spent.”
