News - LCC's decision on £44k fund applications - April 2022

Updated: Oct 27, 2022

On Monday 4 April, Lochwinnoch Community Council (LCC) held a special public meeting to deliberate and decide on the applications to the Ogilvie Homes/Station Rise £44,000 fund.

The total amount requested from all applicants was £69,100, which meant that unfortunately we were not able to recommend funding for all applicants. In some cases applications did not meet our stated criteria, particularly that the funding should be for capital expenditure rather than operational.

Our aim was to fund as many organisations as possible. This has resulted in most applicants receiving a portion of their original request. Some applicants applied in the knowledge that additional funding would be required for their projects, while others requested their total costs.

LCC does not have access to the £44k fund and will not transfer awards to the successful applicants. We will pass on our recommendations for financial support to Renfrewshire Council who will hopefully agree with our decisions, though they will be unable to take any actions on funding until after the local elections on 5 May.
