Town and Parish (TAP) fund

The Town and Parish, or TAP Fund has been set up by Devon County Council and North Devon Council to be used by towns and parishes working in partnership to respond to issues of shared interest and concern. The NDC Town and Parish (or TAP) Fund equates to £1.10 per elector in the district, was worth £83,600 in the financial year 2012/2013, and in it's second year (20142015) was worth £84,000.     The fund is intended to be a catalyst, to stimulate ideas and encourage parishes to work together.

Devon County Council have confirmed their support of this fund for another year 2014 - 2015 and applications will be available in April 2014.   Contact the Grants Officer for more information and to request an application form email: or call 01271 388327.
