The Development Officer explained that the completed impact reports were used to inform the Annual Report.  It was further explained that the CEF Chairs had requested that a piece of work be done on the present impact report form, to look at and refine the key questions to be asked, which would help to capture more data from future applicants.



To discuss any points of interest relating to the Tadcaster and Villages CEF that should be forwarded to Selby District Council’s Communications Team to undertake publicity work.


The Members heard that attendance at the last Forum meeting had been poor, however it was explained that door to door publicity had not been undertaken for that particular meeting, and the difference in attendance was noticeable.  It was confirmed that for the next Forum on Monday 18 November, which was the refresh of the Community Development Plan, door to door delivery of publicity leaflets had been undertaken, and key people had been invited to attend.


The Development Officer updated the members on the video and short films; the films had been completed but there had been a delay as it was identified that to be compliant with new accessibility legislation for local government websites, which had come into force recently, all video content must include subtitles.  This work was being undertaken at present by Wild Studios.


Delivery of the five CEF plaques had taken place, the Chair showed the plaques to the members, and a discussion took place around which funding projects should receive one.  The overall opinion was that the following projects should display a plaque as they received maximum footfall and therefore would be noticeable, helping the CEF brand to become recognisable:-


St Mary’s Church, Tadcaster                 1st Tadcaster Girl Guides

1st Tadcaster Scouts Group                    Appleton Roebuck Tennis Club

Tadcaster Community Library                Riverside Community Primary School

Church Fenton Community Hub             Bolton Percy Church

Church Fenton Community Shop           St Johns Church, Kirkby Wharfe


The Chair requested that the Democratic Services Officer place an order for an additional ten Tadcaster and Villages plaques.


Community Development Plan pdf icon PDF 293 KB

The Development Officer confirmed that the next Forum would be a workshop to refresh the Community Development Plan (CDP), and that the survey link had gone live on the Council website.  The members were requested to share the link with their respective networks, and the Democratic Services Officer was asked to circulate the Forum flyer to people who had received funding from the Tadcaster CEF in the previous two years, to encourage as many people as possible to attend to better inform the CDP.   


The Development Officer explained the new format for the CDP, the Board noted that the outer page would provide general information on the CEF’s and how to access funding, while the inner page would focus on the four main priorities of the Tadcaster and Villages CEF area which was why the information obtained from the survey was so important.
