How has your community helped resolve a local problem?

The Guardian is looking for stories about how local communities are taking control when dealing with social problems.

In the UK, communities are working to solve local problems. Has your neighbourhood or community group got behind a local issue to try and resolve it? We want to hear from people anywhere in the UK about this.

It might be worth telling them how community media supports local projects and community development initiatives. An opportunity to raise profiles perhaps.
