Chichester Neighbourhood Plan – public event – 27 September 2021

The Chichester Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will be holding a roundtable discussion event on Monday 27th September in the Assembly Rooms, The Council House, North St, Chichester PO19 1LQ.

The event will run from 7pm until 9pm.

This will be an opportunity to review all the brilliantly detailed survey work undertaken by the PLACE assessors in recent weeks.

It will also be a chance hear from a range of voices about the changes that could be brought about by the neighbourhood plan, addressing the challenges as identified by the PLACE assessments.

More details about the event to follow shortly, but in the meantime, please put this date in your diaries.

In the meantime, you can read more about the Neighbourhood Plan and PLACE assessments here:

Cycling Without Age comes to Chichester

A great new service has launched in Chichester – Cycling Without Age.

The service aims to help “the elderly and isolated to get back outside and be part of the Chichester community” by providing piloted trishaw cycle rides and “helping passengers to feel the wind in their hair once again.”

With the purchase of the trishaw supported by a New Homes Bonus grant from Chichester City Council, the specially built bicycle allows two passengers to be piloted by a volunteer around their local community.

Discretionary Grants – second funding round announced

At a meeting of the Community Affairs Working Group on Monday 7 June 2021, it was decided to announce a second round of Discretionary Grant funding for 2021-2022.

Chichester City Council awards Discretionary Grants each year to local groups to support their work in the Chichester community.

If the answer to these questions is ‘Yes’, it may be time to contact Chichester City Council and find out if we can help.

Are you a Chichester based community group?
Is your fundraising a problem?
Would a small grant help?

Chichester City Council offers small grants to groups based in the city or whose work is mainly focused within the Parish of Chichester.

These grants are available for the purchase of equipment or other capital costs to help your organisation with a specific project.

Grants may, at the discretion of the Community Affairs Committee, be awarded for staff costs but ONLY where these costs are linked to a specific and finite project.

You will need to:

  • be a non-profit making organisation
  • be Chichester focused, either through geographic location or target group
  • provide a simple Business Plan outlining why a grant would help your organisation
  • provide a copy of your latest Audited Accounts or an Income & Expenditure Sheet for the last financial year

You can read more about it here and find all the paperwork you need to apply: Chichester City Council Discretionary Grants
