The Area Council Manager introduced the item, and Members were made aware that of the £51,000 total available in 2016/17 £20,225.06 had been allocated.
In addition to this it was noted that applications of around £2,000 were being processed. It was suggested that a future meeting of the Area Council may wish to consider devolving further funding to the Ward Alliance.
The meeting discussed whether the public were aware of Area Council’s financial support of the projects, and if this was included in publicity and promoted through social media. It was noted that this was a condition for successful applicants. It was also suggested that successful applicants ought to provide a case study or similar, for the Area Team to include on their Facebook page or use in the community magazine.
RESOLVED that the report be noted.
