MEMBERS' COMMUNITY ALLOCATIONS UPDATE pdf icon PDF 74 KB

    Each county councillor has £5,000 funding for 2019/20 to help residents, voluntary and community organisations deliver activities that benefit local people in their neighbourhoods. This funding is known as Members' Community Allocation.

    Members' Community Allocation funding can be used for one-off activities that cost just a few pounds, alternatively it can contribute to projects that cost much more. The funding is flexibly designed to help with costs that can range from purchasing sports equipment for local clubs, to the creation of websites to reach more residents.

     

    The item reviews the county councillors’ spend to date. The deadline for applications is 31 January 2020.
