Community Chest Grants

Decision Maker: Leader of Council

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

 

On 25 January 2024 the Grants Advisory Committee reviewed all Community Chest applications received between 7 November 2023 and 7 January 2024.

 

Two applications were brought forward in ‘Appendix A’ of the meeting reports pack.

 

After consideration of these applications, the Committee recommended to the Lead Cabinet Member for Resources that:

 

1.    St Nicholas Church Parochial Church Council (XCWDGBKB) be approved and funded at the full amount requested of £2,000

 

2.    Litlington Parish Council (SFVRDFRZ) be approved and funded at the full amount requested of £531

 

Decision:

To accept the recommendations of the Grants Advisory Committee (see above). In reference to the application for a secure shed from St Nicholas Church Parochial Church Council, it is recommended that an electric mower is purchased as opposed to the petrol mower.

 

As the Lead Cabinet member for Resources has declared a non-pecuniary interest in relation to this application, the Council Leader has made the final decision for both January 2024 applications.

Reasons for the decision:

The applications were considered in detail by the Grants Advisory Committee and there is sufficient budget available.

Alternative options considered:

To reject or vary the recommendations of the Grants Advisory Committee and decide on the level of funding (£0 - £2,000) to be awarded for each or defer a decision if further information is required from grant applicants.
