Funding from Area Committees

Area Committee Discretionary Budget

Our Council has allocated a Discretionary Budget to each of the four Area Committees to support their Priority Areas for 2022/2023. 

During March 2022, the four Area Committees met and agreed priorities for their area and allocated the Discretionary Budget to key civic and community initiatives.  Full details for each Area can be found on the Expression of Interest form, along with deadline dates for submission.
