Local Improvement Scheme 2018-21

Parish Councils, local voluntary and community organisations in Nottinghamshire can apply for grants up to £50,000 as part of the new Local Improvement Scheme.

The revised closing date for applications to be submitted to the Local Improvement Scheme is Wednesday 31 January 2018.

Careful consideration will be given by the County Council to applications for financial support for small scale Capital schemes including signs and noticeboards even if match funding is unavailable.

What is the Local Improvement Scheme?

The new Local Improvement Scheme 2018-21 brings together the Council's discretionary revenue and capital funding.

Successful applicants will be awarded a financial contribution to support the delivery of projects that contribute to making Nottinghamshire a great place to live, work, visit and relax – which is at the heart of the Council Plan 2017 - 21.

What funding is available?

  • three year revenue awards from £1,000 to £30,000 per annum in financial support per year
  • annual capital awards from £1,000 to £50,000 (capital funding needs to be spent within two years of being awarded).

Awards will be subject to an annual review as part of the Council's budget considerations and satisfactory monitoring outcomes.
