The Council had received various applications for community grants to be considered in line with the Council’s policy for the allocation of community grants.  The report covered the third round of grants for 2017/18 and made recommendations totalling £31,870.  Each grant application was outlined in the report, as was the reason for the recommendation in respect of that application.
