Grants and Loans


The Parish Council has powers to award grants to local community organisations and charities. Depending on what the grant is for, the individual power is either listed in on our page "The Powers of Parish Councils" or if not covered under these powers, can be granted under Section 137 of the Local Government Act 1972.


Section 137 allows the Parish Council to spend a limited amount on activities it is not otherwise empowered to do, but which it considers to be in the interests of the area of Hughenden Parish or its inhabitants, and which would produce a benefit equal to the grant that is given. The section 137 limit on the Parish Council takes the form of an amount per registered elector and is reviewed annually by central government.
