£2.5 million up for grabs from local quango

(April 21, 2009)
MORE than £2.5million is up for grabs in the form of grants and a panel of the great and the good has already been appointed to decide who should receive the money.

The representative from Warminster is Digby Barker while the management group is chaired by Fleur de Rhe Philipe, who is a member of the Wiltshire Council implementation executive.

Plain Action replaces the successful Sustain the Plain programme although the area of operation has been extended further east.

“I would urge anyone who thinks they may have the remotest chance of obtaining some of this money to apply as we don’t want to miss out on this cash,” said Steve Dancey.

“Hopefully, after the elections we can try to increase the democratic accountability of this body to make it more representative of Wiltshire people.
"We will also be seeking to ensure that the town, for once, gets its fair share."
