Improvement Fund Guidance Notes
Please read these guidance notes before filling in the Application Form below. The Neyland Town Council Town Improvement fund has been designed to improve Neyland and the quality of life of its’ residents by providing support funding for eligible projects.
Who is eligible to apply?
This fund is designed to be as open as possible and as such there are few limits to who can apply. We will accept applications from all voluntary groups / clubs / religious organisations actively working in Neyland. It is by no means exclusively for such groups either; the general guidance is that if your project will positively affect those living in the Neyland Town Council wards of Neyland East and Neyland West then we want to hear from you.
The only two exceptions at this point are;
1) Projects not directly affecting the people of Neyland.
2) We cannot currently accept applications from individuals or businesses.
Help with the Application?
Assistance with the application form can be obtained by contacting the Town Clerk. It is stressed that this application form is not designed to be difficult. We do not want you to have to spend hours completing your application, basic details and evidence is all that is required.
How much can we apply for?
There is no official limit on the amount groups can apply for. The council’s resources are limited however and as a guide £1000 is a sensible maximum. Only exceptional applications will be considered for a larger award. We will only fund a percentage of the costs of a project and the applicant must provide evidence of their own fund raising efforts. there is no limit to the number of applications any group may make in any financial year.
