       20. Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Peacock, seconded by Councillor Nicholl, referred from 3 November 2020 Council Meeting

That this council reviews the application process for council and community grant funding with a view to streamlining the process and ensuring easier access for community organisations. Community Organisations across Causeway Coast and Glens report that our Community grant funding process is extremely demanding and time consuming for often very little sums of money. Our Community Organisations across the area are invaluable to the prosperity of Causeway Coast and Glens and its people and are run by dedicated community volunteers who already have significant demands placed upon them. Council Community Grants should not  be a significant burden to these volunteers who give their time and energy to making this a better place to live and we as a Council should be doing all we can to support them.
