Reviewing feedback

What's proposed?

We are reviewing the Northern Beaches Council Discretionary Fund Policy and have prepared a draft policy for exhibition (draft policy).

The draft policy provides the opportunity for the Mayor and Councillors to respond to requests for financial assistance from individuals, community groups, community organisations and local businesses.

It also recognises that some activities and events arise which do not fall within the guidelines for other Northern Beaches Council funding programs but are still deserving of the support of Council. Applications are assessed against the eligibility criteria contained within the policy.

It is proposed that a report continues to be provided to Council every quarter outlining details of recipients and amounts paid under the Northern Beaches Council Discretionary Fund.

We've provided a marked up version of the draft policy so you can see exactly what's changed. A clean version of the draft policy can be found in the report to Council - you'll find the link to the Council report below the submission form on this page. Click on the blue button below to read the draft policy.

Have your say today by:

  • completing the submission form below
  • emailing council@northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au
  • writing to us marked ‘Draft Northern Beaches Council Discretionary Fund Policy’ to Northern Beaches Council, PO Box 82 Manly NSW 1655.

Following a review of the community feedback received, we will consider if any amendments are required before the returning the draft policy to Council for further consideration and adoption.
