The Barrier Busting site is designed to help you get things done for your local community.

Barrier busting – we’re here to help

Many people have great ideas about how they could make their neighbourhood a better place to live.

Some local authorities want to deliver public services in new ways. Others are keen to do new things, such as invest in small-scale green energy. And volunteers, community groups and social enterprises of many kinds would like to play a bigger role in local life.

But sometimes barriers get in the way. Red tape, rules and regulations stop people putting good ideas into action. Not only is this frustrating – it means that local people miss out.

The barrier busting team is here to help. We want to help you get things done for your local community.

You can also track the progress of barriers that have been submitted and accepted by using ourĀ barrier tracker.
