If your application is approved, you will be sent an email with a letter following Cabinet’s decision setting out certain conditions.
If you have not claimed your grant or any part of your grant within 12 months of notification of your award, then the Council reserves the right to withdraw the grant.
We will only pay up to 50% of the total project costs; this may result in a lesser amount being paid than awarded should your project come under the expected budget.
The grant will be paid once evidence is provided that all funding is in place and payments have been made for the project that match, as a minimum, the amount Rother District Council is putting into the scheme.
In exceptional circumstances, it may be possible to draw down interim payments, however, failure to complete the project will result in a request for repayment of the grant in full.
If anything purchased using your grant is later sold, it will be necessary to notify the Council which reserves the right to reclaim funds.
Rother District Council must be acknowledged in any publicity and promotional material associated with the award of the grant (e.g. plaques put up and in press releases).
An ‘end of grant’ form noting project outcomes and benefits, along with evidence such as photos will be required upon completion of your project/scheme.
The Council also reserves the right to amend these guidance notes and the assessment criteria.
