Community consultation

We require ALL parish and town councils to consult with their communities about how New Homes Bonus allocations for their areas should be spent and to provide evidence that they have done so. 

You could do this by holding public meetings, putting flyers through doors, using social media, putting notices around the parish and in parish magazines.  Read community consultation guidance for further suggestions. If you do not tell your community how much New Homes Bonus you have available to spend and invite views on how it should be spent we will not consider any proposals you submit to us.
