£20k of New Support to Communities

Today MHDC announced an improved two-part ward budget scheme for the next year which was agreed with cross-party support at a council meeting on the 13 May.
 
The scheme is to enable councillors to better support local good causes and gives every councillor up to £500 to support of community projects of their choice in their ward.
 
Cllr David Hughes, Leader of MHDC said "It's great to see cross party support for this initiative and I look forward to seeing what fantastic community causes councillors find to spend this money on throughout the district."
 
In addition, a new fund of £20,000 will enable councillors to bid for up to £5,000 for a Capital Ward Project. Submissions to the fund will be reviewed annually with decisions on the projects made by a panel made up of the Leader of the Council, the council's Head of Resources and a nominated member from each of the three political groups.
 
Anyone interested in putting forward an idea for a community project should get in touch with their local ward member.
