6.     Cambourne Church (QDJLVXNV) be approved and funded at the full amount requested of £1,200

Decision:

To accept the recommendations of the Grants Advisory Committee (see above).

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.

 

As per above, the application from The Cade Pavilion Management Committee (JWCKZHLB) is not funded as it will be the Parish Council (who are ineligible to apply being a larger Parish Council) who will ultimately own the new doors.
