14/03/2018 11:23:58 Many thanks for your application. If I have any questions I will get back to you in due course.

1. Which type of grant are you applying for?
Community Area Grant

2. Amount of funding required?

3. Are you applying on behalf of a Parish Council?

4. If yes, please state why this project cannot be funded from the Parish Precept
Our precept is already under strain from amongst other things the need to take on 6 Wiltshire Council owned play parks which need refurbishment and onward maintenance. We have had to significantly increase the precept for 18-19 to maintain service levels and take on this extra cost.

5. Project title?
Resurfacing of hoggin path extension to Greentrees Junior School

6. Project summary:
To resurface with tarmac an emergency hoggin path put in by the Parish Council to give a safe walking route to Greentrees Junior School and the new country park. The path finishes an existing tarmac path which stops short of the school gate by about 100m and currently encourages children to use a less safe route through a car park and across the entrance to the school and country park car park.

7. Which Area Board are you applying to?

Electoral Division
Laverstock Ford and Old Sarum

8. What is the Post Code of where the project is taking place?
