Support for applicants

Before you complete your application form, we encourage all prospective applicants to discuss their application with the Thematic Lead Officers within the Council, who can talk through your ideas and provide extra guidance and support to strengthen your application. Please note that Officers are not able to review any draft applications but can give advice any answer questions you may have.

For a telephone appointment, it is recommended that you email the relevant officer with your query and book a date and time to discuss your project.
