At a meeting of the Full Council on Tuesday 13 December 2016 it was agreed that funds would no longer be allocated through this scheme and that it would cease after the final meeting of the Cabinet Participatory Budget Sub Committee on Monday 19 December 2016.

It was agreed on at this final meeting that funds would not be awarded for the Autumn 2016 round of the Neighbourhood Participatory Budget Scheme due to the low level of public participation compared to previous rounds. See the minutes from the meeting for further information.

Going forward, projects are invited to submit applications to the Council's Grants Panel, which is to have enhanced resources to enable them to consider new bids for support. For more information see our Grants to Voluntary Organisation.
