To apply for Council funding, groups and individuals can make a submission on the Annual Plan or Long Term Plan. Applicants can make submissions to the Council for variations to the plan, including financial support.
The process begins around November for decisions affecting the Council budget for the next financial year, which begins on 1 July.
