REPORT TO PICKMERE PARISH COUNCIL
6th September 2022
AGENDA ITEM 9.9 POLICE COMMISSIONER’S COMMUNITY ACTION FUND
1.1 The Police and Crime Commissioner’ Community Action Fund has reopened, and an email has provided the following information:
Police and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer’s Community Action Fund has reopened, with money available for projects across Cheshire that will prevent and tackle crime and anti-social behaviour. The application window is now open from 1 September – 30 November 2022.
The fund makes £100,000 available for projects which benefit their local community by working towards improving the safety of individuals in the area.
Individual bids of up to £5,000 can be submitted by applicants who are working with their local policing team to address their area’s priorities. Applications are welcome from community, voluntary or third sector groups, including Parish Councils.
1.2 It seems that the proposed IROS fence may be a project that might fulfil the criteria of the above Fund, although other suggestions are welcome.
1.3 However it is pointed out that grant would not be available for retrospective projects – i.e. projects that have been commenced or completed in advance of grant being awarded.
2.1 That members note the report and decide accordingly.
Clerk to the Parish Council
