General Grants

General Grant Scheme 2020/21

The General Grant Scheme has now closed.  If you have submitted an application in the last batch, it will be considered by the Grants & Community Projects Committee at the February meeting, and make recommendations to Council.  The Council will take the final decisions at the meeting on 4 March 2021 and grants to successful applicants will be paid out afterwards.

The scheme will continue in the next financial year.  Full details of the rules, forms and deadline dates for receipt of applications will be uploaded to this page as soon as everything has been agreed.  So please visit again in June.  If you would like the Clerk to send you a form as soon as they are available, please send her an email with your contact details.


Groups must be committee-run, have a Constitution and a bank account all in the group's name.  Funding cannot be paid to a third party organisation.  Groups must also be based in the Parish Council area. 

How will my application be dealt with and what are the timescales?

Applications received by the notified deadline dates will be considered in the first instance by the Grants and Community Projects Committee, which will make recommendations to the Council.  The Council will consider the recommendations and take the final decisions.  Council meetings are normally held on the first Thursday of the month (except May).  If the application is successful, the payment will be made shortly after the Council meeting.

Updates of the recommendations and decisions on grant applications can be viewed on the News Page of the Council’s website:
