The following page outlines information on the priorities and outcomes of the allocation of Christchurch City Council funds.
The following priorities are used in allocating funding:
These priorities were developed from the key challenges to Building Strong Communities identified in the 2009-19 LTCCP.
The Council is not able to meet the needs and expectations of all not-for-profit and voluntary groups. Therefore, it focuses assistance on key activities and initiatives that contribute to and align with the community outcomes in the Long-Term Council Community Plan (LTCCP) and with other Council strategies.
The following funding outcomes are used to evaluate and assess applications:
The Strengthening Communities Strategy is a framework to guide the Council's work with community organisations, which in turn work in a range of ways to help develop strong communities. Strong communities give people a sense of belonging and encourage them to take part in social, cultural, economic and political life.
For the Strategy to promote the well-being of people in Christchurch, it needs to understand ongoing and emerging issues. As a starting point to help deliver on the Strategy, Council has undertaken a brief literature review to identify and understand community trends and issues.
In addition, Community Boards have their own objectives that are used in the prioritisation of local projects.
