Finance: Budget and Costs
The Neighbourhood Plan team have been able to access a grant from Locality.* This has been used to run a number of projects, such as the landscape assessment, resident consultation days, etc. The information gained from these projects and meetings forms the evidence base for the Neighbourhood Plan, which you can read about on this website.
So far the team has secured a grant of £2,185 and we will apply for a further £5,800 to complete the Neighbourhood Plan.
* Locality is a national network of community-led organisations, working together to help neighbourhoods thrive. The Department for Communities and Local Government has made funding available to provide support and grants. All groups writing a Neighbourhood Plan are eligible to apply for up to £8,000 in grant.
