Groups undertaking a neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood development order are eligible to apply for grants through the Neighbourhood Planning grant scheme.
The scheme provides three types of grants. Basic grant funding of up to £9,000 to undertake a neighbourhood plan; additional grant funding of up to £8,000 for those groups meeting specific criteria and grants of up to £10,000 for groups that wish to evaluate the case for bringing forward affordable housing for sale by undertaking housing needs assessments and other relevant studies.
In addition, the scheme includes professional support and advice on technical or process issues. Applications for grant for 2019-2020 can be submitted until 5pm on 31 January 2020. This means the last date for completing an Expression of Interest form for a grant application is 5pm on 30 January 2020 (applicants will still need to complete their application form by 5pm on the 31 January 2020). Expenditure through a grant must be completed on or before 31 March 2020.
