Groups secure grants thanks to New Homes Bonus funding
Organisations in Sandbach have expressed their joy after being granted thousands of pounds from a community pot.
The successful applicants to receive the first share of funding from Cheshire East Council’s New Homes Bonus Community Fund were announced on Tuesday and a number of non-profit organisations from Sandbach and the surrounding area will benefit from a slice of the £1m.
A further £1m will be available in the next financial year as part of the funding, which is based on the volume of new homes built between 2011 and 2017.
