In February 2008, Manchester City Council released its Principles Document on Climate Change. One of the headlines was a million quid for a “Carbon Reduction and Innovation Fund.” When we asked in June (2009) how much of that they had actually spent, it came out at absolute most as £69,000 (see MCFly #26). On June 29, the Council held a “Living C02mmunities” event at the Town Hall, and asked community groups to apply for funding. We’ve asked the Council “how much of the Carbon Reduction Innovation Fund money has now been spent? Alongside that, it would be good to know how many grants have been made to groups since the June 29 event, what the largest one was, the smallest, the average.”
When we get the answers, we will let you know.
