March Report from District Councillor

District Councillors’ Report

There was good news for parish councils and other community groups at the Leader of the Council’s portfolio meeting on 16 January. He agreed that the £1,000 maximum grant that can be awarded through the Community Chest should be raised to £1,500.

Application form: http://bit.ly/1muEsWw He also agreed a plan that will see South Cambs Youth Councillors consider all applications for projects targeted at those under 18 years old. There will be elections for the Youth Council in the near future. If any of our under 18 residents is interested in standing please do contact lyndaharford@nullicloud.com or tracy.mann@nullscambs.gov.uk

Good news, too, about funds for energy efficiency initiatives. Government money is being made available through the ECO scheme for energy efficiency projects. Those on benefits/low income are eligible for free loft/cavity wall insulation and subsidies for internal/external wall cladding are available to those with whose properties have solid walls. Please contact lyndaharford@nullicloud.com or johnfbateson@nullgmail.com for further information.
