COMMUNITY groups wanting to build new facilities or improve their existing premises are being invited to apply for funding.
Development Trust Locality is opening up its ‘My Community Rights’ support service to help share out a £14 million grant pot to community organisations keen to get on with local building projects for the benefit of their areas.
Projects could include community shops, youth centres or affordable housing projects.
Locality development officer Lyn Kesterton said, “Until very recently this fund was only open to groups pursuing the new Community Right to Build, which is a special type of Neighbourhood Development Order. Now though, it has been widened to encompass a much broader range of projects whether or not they are using the Right to Build.”
