Rural Halls Development Fund

The purpose of the Rural Halls Development Fund is to support funding for the maintenance and development of the district's rural halls for a range of purposes.

These relate to external and internal building works, health, safety and hygiene needs, new or accessibility improvements.

To be eligible, rural halls must be an incorporated society or trust, and forward with their application a copy of the previous year's audited annual accounts.

Applications are prioritised by demonstrated average monthly use, health, safety or fire risk, or weather tightness, and those halls that have less than 30 hours per month use but who can demonstrate that work will increase hall hire.


How to apply

All applications must be made online and include any relevant supporting documentation.

No late applications will be accepted. Applications will be considered at the earliest possible time and rural hall will be notified by mail as to the outcome of their application.
