TRANSPARENCY FUND FOR SMALL PARISH COUNCILS 2017-2018
Parish Councils with an annual turnover of less than £25,000 per annum (not including VAT) are eligible to apply for funding to meet the mandatory requirement for such councils to have in place a website containing all the information required to be published by the Transparency Code for Smaller Local Councils.
During 2016/2017 parish councils in the ERNLLCA area received over £70,000 in funding.
The fund for 2017/2018 has now opened and member councils should start applying now. The application form has been changed very slightly. 2017/2018 is the last year that funding will be available and affected councils must have their website up and running by 31 March 2018.
Councils which received funding in 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 will be able to re-apply for some on-going running costs during 2017/2018.
