The new Council and our priorities.
A Cooperative Alliance of Labour, Swale Independents, Liberal Democrats, Green and Independent councillors now run Swale Borough Council. Tim is the Cabinet member for Environment and a member of the Planning Committee. Alastair is the Deputy Cabinet member for Planning and Chair of the Policy Development and Review Committee. The priorities that the new administration have set out are:
Despite the age of austerity, the Council has reserves of £24m. This money belongs to the local people. A special project fund of £1m a year will be established to support the programme that the new administration has set out to improve the wellbeing of local people.
Grants for Community Projects Available
Details of the member grant scheme have been announced. Each Swale councillor has £2,400 available to support small-scale, local community projects through the member grants scheme. Community groups can bid for funding for projects that provide benefits including culture, sport, recreation, health, environment and community safety. We are particularly keen to support projects that benefit the people of Boughton & Courtenay.
The application process is easy; groups simply need to discuss the project with their local councillor in order to get their support and fill in a simple application form. You will find the forms and all the information you need to make an application at www.swale.gov.uk/member-grants
