Community Project Grants
Below are the latest news items from the Parish Council.
The Council has agreed the last grants for this financial year, which runs from April to March each year.
An environment grant of £400 to Shelley Community Association towards the costs of improvements to the village hall garden.
A community project grant of £950 to Shepley Spring Festival towards the cost of the marquee at the annual festival.
The decision on an application from Burton Environment Group was deferred pending receipt of further information.
The Council is currently reviewing all of its grant schemes with a view to amalgamating some of them to make things simpler. We are hoping to agree the new rules at the June Parish Council meeting. Forms and deadline dates will be posted on the Summary of Grants webpage when all the details have been confirmed.
Dementia Action Alliance in Kirklees
Rural Action Yorkshire (RAY) is working with Kirklees Council and the Dementia Action Alliance to try to improve facilities for people with dementia and their carers. There is currently a lack of facilities in the Parish Council area, so it is hoped that this project will improve the situation with the help of the Parish Council and other groups and businesses in this area.

Inquiry into Low Fold Footpath in Kirkheaton
The dispute on the footpath running between Stead Lane and Bankfiled has been settled by the Public Inquiry. The conclusion is that the footpath must be re-opened and it will be formally added to the records as a Public Right of Way.
The Council has approved the small annual grant applications, totalling £13,990 to 57 local community groups. Individual letters will be sent out to each one to confirm your award in January. The cheques are issued in April at the start of the Council's financial year.
The Council also awarded a community project grant of £950 to Yetton Together to help towards the costs of improving the floors at Kirkheaton Community Centre to bring them to a higher standard and make the rooms more marketable.
And £100 each was awarded to Kirkheaton Beavers and Kirkheaton Creative Craft to help them with the initial start-up expenses.
Originally the Committee recommended refusing the community project grant application from Kirkheaton Scouts and Guides to help fund the annual Kirkheaton Gala. However, the group has submitted further information, so the Committee will be reconsidering the application in the New Year.
The Council continued to support the installation of defibrillators across the Parish. The latest award is £915 to Farnley Tyas Women's Institute, who have organised an installation at the Golden Cock.This represents 50% of the total costs, including an information session.
