Dear South Kesteven District Council,

Please supply information under FOI to the following requests.

On 1st April 2016 a new policy was instigated by SKDC for use of community rooms to regulate use. Part of this was a charge to be made for use/hire of the room at the sheltered or communial facilities. Any money raise was to be split and 60% of the revenue was for the 'Residents Initiatives Fund' This was approved by council on 29th Feb 2016.

1/Could you please tell me how much money was raised from this new charge overall and how much was sent back to the residents via the 'Residents Initiatives Fund' since its inception. Please itemise amount per Scheme.

2/ Could you please confirm if bookings have increased or decreased since this charge was made.

Yours faithfully,


Customer Services, South Kesteven District Council
