Funding from building projects
Grant funds we currently offer for community organisations are:
- Funding from Section 106 funding
- Community Grant Fund
Funding from Section 106 planning obligations
Funding known as Section 106 (S106) can be used to develop and / or improve community facilities and various open spaces. This funding has been secured through a planning obilgation request which is a deed or agreement attached to the land that is the subject of a planning permission. Contributions secured through planning obligations are used to mitigate or compensate for the negative impacts of a development.
Read how we secure Section 106 obligations in the Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document.
