Councillors will be asked to approve almost £2,000 in funding for projects designed to improve life in north-east communities tomorrow.
The money from the community council project grant scheme could be spent on projects such as hanging flower baskets, new picnic tables for Cornhill and a notice board.
Members of the Banff and Buchan area committee will discuss the applications for funding from the Banff and Macduff, Cornhill and Ordiquhill and Portsoy and district community councils.
The group from Banff and Macduff wants £607 to go towards the purchase of 50 hanging baskets to be put on display in both towns.
Cornhill hopes to secure more than £900 for a children’s and inclusive picnic tables at the village sports field.
The Portsoy community group wants £476 to go towards the purchase of a new notice board to put up posters.
A report by council education boss, Laurence Findlay, said the funding scheme was for community councils looking to push ahead with their own initiatives.
He said: “The aim of the Banff and Buchan community council project grant is to support and empower community councils to raise funds for schemes, projects and other purposes within their stated objectives.
“The total of the three requests for funding is £1,991 and, if the committee agrees to grant all three, this will leave a balance of £1,183.00 in the project grant fund.”
The Banff and Buchan area committee will consider the applications when meet in Fraserburgh on Tuesday.
