Decision details

Large Match Funding Application - Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of Thetford

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To consider the decision to award funding to the Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of Thetford

Decision:

The grant award of £19,817 (or 8.1% of the project costs, whichever is the lower amount) to the Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of Thetford to update facilities to make the church more suitable for community activities be approved.

Reasons for the decision:

The grant application meets the criteria of the scheme. This is project which although being delivered by a church is strongly focused on delivering community activity and benefit. The project appears to be well planned and led, and fundraising is well advanced. The project also responds well to the identified needs in Thetford. The assessor gave some consideration to the potential for overlap between this project and the recently funded project at the Charles Burrell Centre to increase opportunities for work experience. However the assessor concluded that the Thetford PCC’s focus on catering training means that this project is complementary to the Charles Burrell project.

Alternative options considered:

1)     Fully fund the application set out in the report

2)     Part fund the application set out in the report

3)     Do nothing
