Councillor Community Fund

In 2019-20 the Councillor Community Fund will operate as an open-bidding fund with a maximum grant of up to £1,000.00 available to fund in part or in whole local schemes and projects. If you have a project for which you need some funding then contact your local councillor and if it is a suitable they will be able to submit an application on your behalf. The application will be considered at a monthly panel meeting and your councillor will inform you if you have been successful.
