Chelford Parish Plan Team Funds
Chelford Parish Plan Team raised funds as part of the Chelford Activity Pathway Project. As originally intended, much of these moneys were used in providing the Chelford Activity Park.
It was also intended to provide a safe means of pedestrian access from Dixon Drive to the Activity Park. However, after many negotiations between the Parish Council and the landowner, permission to build the path was not forthcoming.
As a result, some unused funds remain and the constitution of the Parish Plan Team states that if such a circumstance arose, then that money must be used for the benefit of Chelford and its community.
This is an opportunity for Chelford community organisations to bid for these residual funds so that they might be put to good use for the benefit of village residents.
Please note: the closing date for applications is 31st October 2018.
What can the grant cover?
There is considerable flexibility over what can be paid for by this fund — but the following tests will be applied:
1 Does the project benefit the community of Chelford
2 Is there a clear project plan for the delivery of those benefits?
3 Will those benefits in all likelihood be sustainable?
4 Is there any element of match funding?
Not all tests will need to be met in all cases: judgement will be used based on the level of grant. There is an expectation that more of the tests would need to be met for more substantial grants. In the spirit of how the money was originally raised, preference will be given to those projects which promote physical activity and/or benefit a wide range of age groups.
