The following mail was sent to counciilors today to clarify some key points concerning clubs who might be making applications under the Sports Capital Fund but who do not own their own land.
I refer to the call for applications for Sports Capital Grants 2015 and wish to advise members of the current position in relation to the above matter and the conditions and criteria which must be adhered to by applicants in making applications in terms of land ownership and title. It is understood that a number of clubs are not eligible due to being unable to meet the criteria in respect of leases and / or land ownership.........
In making the application the Council will name the club on the application and the club must be in a position to provide all other required documentation and proofs including evidence of their required contribution towards the cost of proposal within the application. Further discussion with the Council will be necessary also to revise the existing licences and agreement on a licence covering the use of the proposed facility in line with the application proposal.
A meeting will be arranged with each of the clubs that have expressed an interest in applying for a Sports Capital Grant in 2015.
