Section137 of the Local Government Act 1972 allows the Parish Council to spend a limited amount on activities for which it has no specific power, but which the authority considers ‘will bring direct benefit to the area, or any part of it or all or some of its inhabitants’. The Local Government and Housing Act 1989 added the requirement that the benefit obtained should be commensurate with the expenditure incurred.
Community/voluntary/charitable organisations may apply to the Parish Council for a grant. They must be non-profit making.
Application forms are available to download from the website, or you can contact the Clerk for a paper copy.
All applications must be accompanied by supporting documents and copies of accounts.
Deadline for receiving applications is Friday 30th August 2018.
The Parish Council will consider all applications at its meeting on Tuesday 10th September.

Please forgive our direct approach, but we have fallen in love with Stokeinteignhead and the surrounding area. We currently live in Torbay and would like to buy our next family home in or around the village. Are you considering selling your house, or do you know someone interested in selling?
We are happy to move in a mutually agreeable timeframe, that would be convenient for yourself and to deal with you directly to save your estate agency fees, which could be as much as £9000 or more for a property like yours.
If you would like to contact us for an informal chat, then we would love to hear from you.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please be assured we are a genuine couple only looking to buy their family home.
