New Homes Bonus Grant
In view of the continuing budget pressures and the further reductions in Government Grant support arising from the latest Local Government Finance Settlement, South Gloucestershire Council on 17 February 2016 confirmed that the devolved NHB grants scheme would cease and no further awards would be made.
We publish all grant awards over £500 as part of our obligations under the Local Government Transparency Code. This code is issued to meet the government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability. It makes it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services. We have published our payment data in relation to three grant streams Community Grants, New Homes Bonus and Positive Activities Subsidy 2014/15 and 2015/16.
