Better Neighbourhood Grants - Apply to Your Local Councillor

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Each year Spelthorne borough councillors are allocated a sum of money which they can use to support activities in their wards.  In the last few years each councillor has been allocated £1k, but this year the amount has been increased to £2k, with the additional money having to be spent to support “Green” initiatives.  What constitutes a Green initiative is not precisely defined but could be considered to cover anything that will improve the environment.   

Your Lower Sunbury councillors would like to hear from you about any new or existing ideas or schemes that you feel could benefit from receiving some of this funding, particularly any that you feel might qualify as a Green initiative.  Applying for the scheme is not hard - you just need to provide a short statement of what you want to do and how a grant would help you achieve your aims.  

Grants are generally made to community/voluntary organisations and funds must be used to support more than one person who lives or works in the councillor’s ward.  If you have a good idea but are not part of a formal group, please ask your councillors as we don’t want bureaucracy to stifle doing the right thing. 

Your councillors would love to talk to you about your ideas.  We all want to spend every penny wisely and in support of schemes that will benefit the community.  In the last year COVID dominated the grants, with schools in particular getting support to help with remote learning.  This year we want to cast the net as widely as possible and support ideas that will improve our local environment.
