Big Local is a ten-year programme that will achieve lasting change in 150 areas in England. Northfleet was chosen as one of the first 50. It will provide a mixture of funding, finance and support. This will enable local people to build on local talents and aspirations and identify and act on their own needs to make their areas better places to live, now and in the future. Local communities will drive Big Local in their area. The programme will support, challenge, train and encourage people to develop and take ownership of Big Local in their local area. There will be a unique programme of activity in each area based on local needs.
In 2011, the National Lottery confirmed that it would invest £1,000,000 into Northfleet North over a period of ten years. The Big Local was set up mainly from residents in the area in order to decide how the money will be spent.
