The scheme provides councillors with £500 per year. It is intended to allow councillors to assist local projects financially, support local initiatives and needs or opportunities which would also allow councillors to become more involved in their communities.
Councillors are entitled to use their allocation, in whole or in part, to contribute towards a local project which is receiving finance from other sources.
