Area Member Panel opportunities fund

Area Member Panel fund application dates

Our district includes a panel of local councillors for each area called an Area Member Panel.

Applications for the opportunities fund are taken to the relevant Area Member Panel meeting for a decision.

The dates below show when you need to apply by to have your proposal considered at the next meeting.


Canterbury AMP will consider applications twice a year (November and March) with time sensitive applications permitted at any time.

Herne Bay

Herne Bay AMP will commission local residents and community groups for potential projects to fund, rather than just applications received. 

If you have a project then contact a local councillor for them to consider taking it forward. Otherwise, community group applications will be considered each March, with a closing date of 31 January.

Any resources not allocated to councillor commissioned projects will be carried forward to the meeting in March 2018 to consider applications from community groups.

Rural AMP agreed to set aside one third (£3,333) of the fund to be used for councillor commissioned projects that affect rural areas.

The remaining two thirds (£6,666) of the fund is open for applications from the public and community groups.

If any money is left over from councillor commissioned projects, then this will be added to the amount allocated for public applications.
