New Homes Bonus Applications 2018
Chichester City Council’s New Homes Bonus allocation for 2018 was £74,359; the applications submitted totalled £124,380.
Members discussed the applications and considered them all to be worthy of support and it was therefore proposed, seconded and RESOLVED that all the applications be reduced by 40%; this would give a total submission of New Homes Bonus Applications 2018 of £74,628 (£269 over the City Council’s allocation).

To create a life-size bronze statue of Admirals Horatio Nelson and George Murray located on a plinth in front of the Fernleigh House, North Street, Chichester . This project was supported by the City Council – £15,000. The support was given with the caveat that there should be no financial obligation on the City Council for this project.
