PCC Announces Successful Community Response Fund Round 3 Projects

Following the outcome of the public vote of the Community Response Fund Round 3, Jonathan Evison, Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside is pleased to announce the successful projects. 

The PCC’s Community Response Fund (CRF) provides funding for projects that address the key issues the public have identified via Humber Talking, the engagement tool used by the PCC and Humberside Police which asks residents key questions about the issues that affect their community, for example, road safety, criminal damage, drug dealing and antisocial behaviour.

Round Three focused on Barton, Beverley, Bridlington South, Goole, Hornsea, Crowle, Kirton-in-Lindsey.  In this round, the PCC, HEY Smile Foundation, East Riding Community Safety Partnership and East Riding of Yorkshire Council made additional funding available to enable additional, higher value projects that support the delivery of the Clear, Hold, Build Initiative to be selected in Bridlington South.  Two projects have been selected in Bridlington South, each accessing up to £17,500 of grant, compared to the other locations which have selected one project of up to £10,000 per area.

In this round, the public vote was used to confirm public support for the eight projects shortlisted across these areas. 

Five out of the eight areas met the minimum threshold for the public vote and have been awarded a grant to deliver the whole project. 

Those in Beverley, Crowle and Kirton-in-Lindsey did not secure the minimum number of votes but were still awarded a three-month grant which will then be reviewed with the potential to extend should demand and impact be demonstrated. 

Beverley and Crowle projects are now confirmed and conversations are ongoing with Kirton-in-Lindsey Town Council.
