Exciting times ahead for us as the Council announces a second round of funding from the Village Planning Fund.

The Hampton cluster, including Teddington, Hampton Wick, Hampton and Hampton Hill, have a much more substantial pot for this round and there will be a real opportunity to find creative solutions to the areas of need in Hampton and Hampton Hill.

There are two workshops planned to help us with the process of making an application to the Village Planning Fund. The workshops will cover recommendations on how to make a strong application and examples of good practice from the first round.

Session 1 -Tuesday 30th January, 3.00 – 5.00 pm,
The Studio, York House, Twickenham, TW1 3DD
Session 2 -Thursday 1st March, 6.00 – 8.00pm
Room PK5, Ground Floor, Richmond Adult Community College, Parkshot, Richmond, TW9 2RE

They are repeated sessions. Please contact Siobhan and indicate in your response which session you wish to attend.

The sessions will be invaluable for those who are interested in the applying to the Village Planning Fund. They will be an opportunity to;
• Ask questions about the application process
• Understand what the Council are looking for in a successful bid
• Discover common mistakes and how to avoid them
• Hear top tips on what makes a stronger application

Applications for funding will need to be submitted between February 4th to 6th April, with the funding decision anticipated early summer.
