How to submit a New Homes Bonus (NHB) proposal

Parish and town councils can submit proposals for spending New Homes Bonus allocations for their area.  Click here to find out how much your parish or town still has left to draw down, the figures exclude any monies we have approved but not yet paid.

To make an application complete our NHB proposal form and email it to us with supporting evidence that you have consulted with the community. We suggest you read our guidance notes before completing your form. 

Any proposals over £1,000 will go to our Communities and Funding Advisory Panel for approval. The next meetings of the panel and the deadline date for all applications are as follow:

28 June 2019 - deadline for proposals 12 June
9 September 2019 - deadline for proposals 21 August
4 November 2019 - deadline for proposals 16 October
 

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. Have a look at our 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.
