The New Homes Bonus Fund was set up by Aylesbury Vale District Council using money it receives from central Government when new homes are created in the district.

Cllr Howard Mordue, cabinet member for finance, resources and compliance said: “These funds make such a difference in helping projects around Aylesbury Vale to improve facilities in our local communities.

“I would encourage those who are interested to come forward now and see if AVDC can help.”
