Parishes Together Funding 2014 / 2015

Parishes Together Funding is the sum of £1.10 per elector in each parish that is put by EDDC and Devon County Council into a pot that the parishes can then apply for. Parishes have to work together to apply for the funding. The EDDC New Homes Bonus Panel regularly meets to decide on the applications. The following table is a list of funding that has been approved by the New Homes Bonus Panel in 2014/ 2015, this totals £83,166.27 which will be spent on community projects.

There was £107,737.30 available in the Parishes Together Fund from 2014/2015. In addition there was money available that was leftover from the fund in 2013/2014 which the New Homes Bonus Panel could distribute this year.
