Content will include: (draft agenda)
- discussion on the application of the allocation factors and their suitability
- consideration of the ways CB funding can assist communities - may also involve discussion on the management and application processes for funding
- Identification of projects that communities might be planning or would like to see taken forward with the support of the CB funding
Outcomes from the workshop sessions will be reported back to the Highland Council
