GRANT FUNDING AVAILABLE
Parish Council grant applications are now available.
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.
Application forms are available to download here, or you can contact the Clerk for a paper copy.
All applications must be accompanied by supporting documents and copies of accounts.
Deadline for receiving applications is Friday 31 August 2018.
The Parish Council will consider all applications at its meeting on Tuesday 11 September.
The next meeting of Stokeinteignhead Parish Council is to be held at 7.30pm on Wednesday 27 June 2018 in Stokeinteignhead Village Hall. This is an additional extraordinary meeting of the Council.

Parish Council Salt Spreading
You may be aware that the Parish Council has a salt spreader for the Village.
Our primary routes for spreading are the Combeinteignhead/Maidencome Cross boundary and Deane Road.
To undertake salt spreading of every road and track in the parish would be a huge undertaking and would require the storage of large amounts of salt; the Parish Council does not have the resources to do this.
At the moment, snow is so thick that the spreading would not be effective. Weather forecasts suggest ice and rain to come.
We must consider the safety of our VOLUNTEERS. In current weather conditions, it would be dangerous for any work to be undertaken.
We hope all residents are safe and we advise everyone to keep up to date with travel information from Devon Highways and Devon County Council.
