applicants:
-
Update from Winford Parish Council on traffic calming measures
Thank you from Meadowside Pre-School
Thank you from St Katharine’s Church, Felton
Thank you from Claverham (Yatton) Cricket Club and fixtures list
Councillor Yamanaka queried whether Claverham (Yatton) Cricket Club had provided an updated
copy of its Constitution and Rules to reflect the change as a community based clubhouse, as
requested by the Committee (note: subsequent to the meeting this has been confirmed by the Fund
Administrator).
5. Noise insulation update
A total of 48 eligible applications had been received for this year’s scheme.
-
8 applications had been received from residents in the 63dB noise contour area, with
requested grants totalling £37,926.

requested grants totalling £35,950.
24 applications had been received from residents in the 57dB noise contour area, with

The total of all the applications received is £124,036.50.
18 enquiries were also made from residents outside of the eligible area.
6. Applications for funding
a. Noise Insulation Grants
Melanie King explained that granting all applications would leave limited funds to be allocated at
the following two meetings. However, the Committee were minded to grant funds for all
applications. It was agreed that in principle all applications be approved. To ensure sufficient
funds were available for other projects, the following prioritisation was agreed, in line with the
guidance provided to applicants:
-
Applicants within the 63dB and 60dB noise contour areas would receive grants this year
(totalling £73,876).
Applicants within the 57dB noise contour would receive grants in January 2017 when
new funds would be available (totalling £50,160.50).
Should there be limited further applications to the Fund during 2016 this date for funding the
57dB grant applications could be brought forward, and doing so would be considered as an
agenda item at subsequent meetings.
All applicants will be written to, either confirming that they will receive a grant this year (63 and
60dB) or in January 2017 (57dB).
It was agreed that the Committee would then invite further applications for noise insulation
grants towards the end of 2017, although exceptional cases within the highest priority area may
be considered on an ad hoc basis.
Resolved: noise insulation grants from the Fund would be granted totalling £73,876 in 2016
and £50,160.50 in January 2017.
b. Regil Village Hall
The project is to replace emergency fire doors for the west side of the village hall.
The application requested a grant of £2,700 towards the project.
The Committee agreed the scheme was in the core area of support, and it met the sustainability
criteria of the Fund.
Resolved: a grant from the Fund would be granted for £2,700.
c. Wrington C of E Primary School
The project is to purchase additional playground equipment (a Traverse Climbing Wall) for use
by the junior school pupils.
The application requested £5,000 towards the project.
The Committee agreed the project is in the core area of support and met the educational criteria
of the Fund.
Resolved: a grant from the Fund would be granted for £5,000.
d. Winford Village Pre School
The project is to provide an outdoor play area and garden for Winford Pre School.
The application requested £1,500 towards the project.
The Committee agreed the scheme was in the core area of support, and it met the sustainability
criteria of the Fund.
Resolved: a grant from the Fund would be granted for £1,500.
e. Yatton and Congresbury Parish Councils
The project is to design, manufacture and install eight interpretation boards on Cadbury Hill.
The application requested £1,000 towards the project.
The Committee agreed the scheme was not in the core area of support and that there was no
evidence that residents within the core area would benefit.
Resolved: a grant from the Fund would not be granted.
f.
Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group (YACWAG)
The project is to run and organise a group of walks and surveys to map the commuting routes of
the Greater Horseshoe bat in the Kinds Wood SSSI and surrounding area (Claverham, Cleeve,
Yatton, Brockley, Wrington and Congresbury). The application is to fund the purchase of five
wildlife acoustic visual bat detectors and iPad minis and two static bat detectors that can remain
in situ for four weeks to gather data.
The application requested £4,500 towards the project.
The Committee agreed the scheme includes both core and non-core areas. The scheme met the
sustainability and educational criteria of the fund. It was agreed to partially fund the project,
covering the monitoring equipment.
Resolved: a grant from the Fund would be granted for £2,514
7. Funding
Councillor Wilton cited the increasing level of frustration and disruption experienced by local
residents and the weekly complaints received and in this context formally requested that the size of
the Community Investment Fund be reviewed and additional contributions from Bristol Airport
sought.
