The Community Planning Fund offers grants of up to £2,000 to assist communities in Bristol to participate in the planning process.
Since 2006, this Fund has supported Neighbourhood Planning Network groups in Bedminster, Lockleaze, Redcliffe, Lawrence Weston, Old Market and St Pauls. It has assisted Gloucester Road and Bedminster to bid for Town Team status and in the case of the latter, win a £100,000 grant from central government to rejuvenate a shopping street. Funding for this initiative is being provided by Bristol City Council and a private charitable trust.
The aim of the grant programme is to assist planning groups to improve the quality of life in their community by:
- Participating more effectively in the planning of their area.
- Encouraging participation in shaping developments through effective community involvement.
- Leading and educating their local population in planning matters.
The grant programme will give priority to areas where there is:
- A large supply of development land.
- Significant social deprivation.
It will assist with the community involvement stages of the development of these areas. This might include publicity (e.g. leaflets), the cost of meetings, plan-writing etc.
Applications are welcomed from small, local, voluntary and community organisations where a small amount of money can make a difference. Applicants must be based and working in Bristol.
