Neighbourhood Plan Funding
The Walton Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group were successful in securing a £5,000 grant and direct support from Planning Aid via Locality. These funds are vital in helping the plan progress, allocating money for community engagement, legal and professional advice when required. In addition to this grant funding, there has been input and support from volunteers at Planning Aid who have attended our steering group meetings, assisted at community events, given presentations and offered guidance as we progress. The grant funding spend is monitored and audited by CDF the Community Development Foundation.

Support and grant funding was provided by the Supporting Communities in Neighbourhood Planning Programme led by Locality in association with RTPI / Planning Aid England, CDF and partners, available through the My Community Rights website.
