Cheshire West and Chester Council have a number of vehicles which they have agreed will be offered to local communities, including local schools, to benefit residents of the borough.

The vehicles are second hand and may range from small yellow non accessible minibuses to medium sized accessible minibuses (with tail-lifts).

Applicants are invited from September 2015 to detail how they would use the vehicle to benefit local residents.

Joint bids are particularly encouraged where they will offer benefits to young people as well as to adults in the local community.

Who can apply?
From September 2015, initial bids will be invited from local schools, working ideally with other community groups. This initial round offers a unique opportunity for schools to partner with their local communities prior to the opening up of the process more widely in November. An initial evaluation will take place in November 2015.

From November 2015, bids will be invited from communities overall. Schools will still be able to bid during this time but they will then be assessed along side the second evaluation round.

Are there any restrictions on who can drive these vehicles?

Yes, there are restrictions relating to driver licencing and vehicle weights.
In addition, applicants need to be aware of the rules surrounding 'hire and reward'.

How Do I Apply?
Download the application form here and send your completed application to Sarah.mcglynn@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk

Closing date?
Applications will be assessed between November 2015 and February 2016
