They have a long history of working with town and parish councils, communities and voluntary sector organisations.
Members of GRCC’s Community Development Team are able to provide direct one-to-one support on the development a wide range of community projects and services. They can support community groups with building capacity, setting up new enterprises and projects, community consultation, project and business plans and funding advice.
If you have a project or community initiative you want to get off the ground, review or need help with, please contact GRCC’s Community Development Team by email at email@example.com or call 01452 528491.
Each Town and Parish Council must publish a report on CIL income and expenditure for the previous financial year by the 31st December annually. This mirrors the legislative requirements that SDC must also adhere to as the Charging Authority.
