Grants to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations

The code requires that local authorities must publish details of all grants to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations. This can be achieved by either:

  • Tagging and hence specifically identifying transactions which relate to voluntary, community or social enterprise organisations within published data on expenditure over £500 or published procurement information, or
  • By publishing a separate list or register

For each identified grant, the following information must be published as a minimum:

  • Date the grant was awarded
  • Time period for which the grant has been given
  • Local authority department which has awarded the grant
  • Beneficiary
  • Beneficiary’s registration number (where applicable)
  • Summary of the purpose of the grant
  • Amount

Crowborough Town Council publishes this information as a separate list, as below.

Unregistered Rights of Way - Can You Help?

Do you know of any unregistered rights of way (footpaths, 'cut-throughs', alleys or bridleways) in or around Crowborough? Following the introduction of The Deregulation Act 2015 there is now a cut-off date by which all such paths must be registered, or face being lost. In particular, this concerns any rights of way that existed pre-1949 and are therefore not on any council maps, or any more recent cut-throughs or 'muddy paths'.

If you know of any such unregistered rights of way that you believe should be registered, please contact the Town Hall on (01892) 652907 or , providing the location and any other details you may have. Thank you for your help!
