County councillors' locality budgets

Each councillor gets £10,000 a year to spend on local projects that promote the social, economic or environmental wellbeing of their local area.

Grants can be given for anything, as long as it's legal and doesn't go against a county council policy.

Councillors have given grants before for:

  • Non-profit community events
  • Crime prevention
  • Health
  • Education

​Visit the county council website for more information.
