Council has placed a cap on the maximum grant payable to any one organisation of £1,500 per year for both general and open spaces grants. They have discretion to look at awarding higher amounts for one-off higher cost projects, so if an organisation wishes to apply for more than £1,500, a case can be put forward for consideration. A cap has also been introduced for community pride grants where a group applying can have a maximum of £1,000.
