Section137 of the Local Government Act 1972 allows the Parish Council to spend a limited amount on activities for which it has no specific power, but which the authority considers ‘will bring direct benefit to the area, or any part of it or all or some of its inhabitants’. The Local Government and Housing Act 1989 added the requirement that the benefit obtained should be commensurate with the expenditure incurred.
Community/voluntary/charitable organisations may apply to the Parish Council for a grant. They must be non-profit making.

All applications must be accompanied by supporting documents and copies of accounts.
Deadline for receiving applications is Friday 30th August 2018.
