Banff and Buchan councillors will meet on Tuesday, April 1, to discuss proposals to award the allocation of £41 for each meeting held to community council groups.

The proposal, which would affect 11 community council groups in Banff and Buchan, could see those groups who hold the most meetings, Rosehearty and Whitehills, 11, awarded £451 as part of their administration grant.

A remaining £3,659, it is proposed, will become available for project grant applications, contributing towards 80% of the cost of a project, to a maximum of £1,000.

Councillors will discuss the proposals in Banff next week.
