It was agreed that the Development Officer would create a graph or flowchart to demonstrate which wards and villages have benefitted the most financially from the Community Chest. This was going to be brought to the next meeting of the Grants Committee on Friday 30th August for comment before being circulated to all Members.

 

The Committee remarked that the Community Chest Criteria were not clear that applications which did not benefit the wider community would likely be rejected. It was agreed that officers would inform applicants of this precedent at which point it would then be the choice of the applicant to continue with the process.
