Section 137 of the Local Government Act 1972 empowers the Parish Council to spend some of its money, subject to limits, on purposes that it considers to be "in the interests of, and will bring direct benefit to, their area, or any part of it, or all or some of its inhabitants." The maximum allowed to be spent in the 2020/21 financial year is calculated at £8.32 per elector. Grants under Section 137 are only available to Groups or Organisations (personal applications cannot be considered) and any grant requests must be supported by a Chineham Parish Council Grant Application Form. The request must be from a Group or Organisation that supports or has a direct benefit to the residents of Chineham.
