Community Match Schemes 2023/24

Decision Maker: Lead Member for Transport and Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To authorise expenditure for 2023/24 as contribution towards Community Match schemes.


5.1       To avoid the potential for a perceived conflict of interest, the Lead Member for Resources and Climate Change considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport on behalf of the Lead Member for Transport and Environment.




5.2       The Lead Member RESOLVED to:


(1) Agree that £30,000 of match funding is allocated towards the Blackboys Community Match speed limit reduction scheme for detailed design work in 2023/24 and construction in 2023/24; and


(2) Delegate authority to the Director of Communities, Economy & Transport to approve the 50% match funding contribution for the scheme in Table 1 up to a maximum contribution of £50,000 once the design and construction costs are known.




5.3       The Community Match programme continues to provide the opportunity for town/parish councils, local resident groups and organisations to secure match funding to enable local priority schemes to be delivered which otherwise would not come forward using County Council funding alone through the capital programme of local transport improvements. From the £250,000 allocation for 2023/24, there is sufficient funding available to provide the community match funding requests to deliver the scheme at Blackboys for which an application has been submitted.
