  • Seek and obtain planning permission and/or building regulations approval for building works, where appropriate and complete the works in accordance with approved plans
  • Agree to provide any self-evaluation or report in respect of expenditure of funding as may be required by the Council. Also to allow Council officers access to inspect the recipients records at any time subsequent to reasonable notice (of not less than five working days) having been given
  • Provide reasonable facilities for the inspection of the project for which assistance is approved
  • Take out adequate insurance cover for any buildings, machinery or equipment purchased with grant assistance
  • Implement their proposals/project and claim the grant assistance approved in the financial year in which it is approved
  • Submit invoices and receipts relating to the expenditure for which grant assistance is awarded to the Borough Council as soon as they become available
  • Retain ownership of any equipment, machinery, land or buildings for which grant assistance has been approved for a period of at least 3 years, unless prior authorisation for disposal has been given by the Council
  • Promote the scheme at all events and on all purchases funded by the scheme by either including the Council logo or the words 'Supported by South Tyneside Council' on all publicity and advertising

The whole of the grant assistance or part thereof at the discretion of the Council paid to a group will become repayable if any of the above conditions are broken, or if false information is knowingly given in the application form submitted. Failure to submit invoices/receipts will stop further applications being processed and may require repayment of all or part of the grant awarded.
