Design Council grants on offer

Design Council CABE is distributing grants to support smaller organisations to work with the local community and support their aspiration for the design quality of developments in their area.

Two types of grants of up to £7,000 are being offered to help communities develop their own vision for how their built environment should evolve and engage in local design review to uphold the design quality of forthcoming development projects.

It is possible to apply for a grant from each of the two schemes to deliver a comprehensive package of design support, working with the same community over an extended period.

Collectively, the two grant schemes will offer up to 19 grants totaling a maximum of £130,000.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 1 August 2011.

Design Review Grant

This will be awarded to existing local design review panels to engage the community in improving the design quality of proposed development in their area

Neighbourhood Projects Grant

This will award small grants to not-for-profit organisations to provide advice and support to community groups to help them achieve design quality in neighbourhood projects

  • Places Matter!, the design advisory group for the North West partly funded by Design Council CABE, would be interested to hear about any potential applicants in the region and would be willing to provide additional support to any successful entries in the region.
