Calling all local charities/organisations...!!
At the very start of the Rothwell North build and following unsuccessful requests for a link road to be built prior to the start of house building, Persimmon Homes agreed to set up and monitor a safe route for construction vehicles travelling to and from the site, implementing fines on those that failed to adhere to this. It was agreed that both Rothwell and Desborough Councils be issued with half of the fines pot each to issue to local charities/organisations.
Following the opening of the link road to construction vehicles in October 2022, this pot of money has now been finalised and is ready to distribute.
The total amount of money available to is £28155.00 per Council, a huge pot that we are confident will make a substantial difference to many local charities!
Rothwell Town Council now invite applicants to tender for a share of this pot of money. This seems the fairest way for the money to be distributed, hopefully providing everyone with a chance to tackle many of those projects that may never have got off the ground…
APPICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN AND WILL CLOSE AT THE END OF THE YEAR – SATURDAY 31ST DECEMBER 2022
Council will consider all applications received at its January meeting on Tuesday 10th January 2023. Successful applicants will be notified by the Clerk and their details will be shared with Persimmon Homes who will be responsible for the payment of successful tenders – we endeavour to make all payments by the end of January 2023.
Completed application forms and/or any questions should be sent to:
