EAST Devon District Council and Devon County Council have worked together to put the sum of £1.10 per elector into a ‘Parishes Together Fund’ grants scheme that Town and Parish Councils can apply for.
The funding is available to Parish Councils working together and involving the community to try and solve local issues. All applications must be submitted jointly from two or more parishes. This means that it would be sensible for Axmouth, Combpyne-Rousdon and Uplyme parishes to work together. The funding could be used for anything from permanent items to events, networks and one-off costs.
Each Parish Council involved will be able to apply for up to £1.10 for every person in their parish that was listed on the electoral roll in February 2012.
