Community Grant Scheme 2018-19

The introduction of the New Homes Bonus was a radical shift in the way the Government wished to incentivise growth. Too often, we have seen increased housing resulting in increased strain on local services, local amenities and infrastructure. The New Homes Bonus is intended to effectively address the disincentive within the local government finance system for local areas to welcome growth. We hope that this protocol will ensure the benefits of economic growth are more visible across all areas of the district.
