Apply for a Grant
The town council sets aside part of its annual budget each year to make grants and donations to local voluntary and community groups. This power is available to the town council under section 137 of the Local Government Act.
Each year the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government sets a limit on the maximum a parish/town council can spend on the community with this power.
The limit for 2022-23 is £8.82 per elector therefore the council has set an overall budget of £30,000 for 2021-22. £5000 has been ringfenced to contribute to the various Christmas Lights initiatives across the parish.
We welcome applications from all local groups and organisations who's work benefits our residents. See below for the full details on the policy and how to apply.
The closing dates for the three rounds of £10,000 allocated in 2022/23 are as follows:
31st July 2022 - Decisions normally taken in September however we have been delayed due to the Queen's passing and will decide in October.
30th November 2022 - Decisions taken in December and funds paid if successful
