Norm is absolutely right that Council is free to override the Area Rating policy to fund projects that are not one-off infrastructure items, and has done so numerous times in the past, notably the school nutrition programme funded through Ward 1's process.

I personally believe that it is better to limit proposals to one-off infrastructure projects (sometimes funded from reserves set aside over several cycles) and that the assemblies should be given guidelines on what sort of projects are acceptable. I am particularly uncomfortable with existing charities essentially applying for funding through the PB process. This is another subject that can be discussed when the Ward 2 (and Ward 1) processes are reviewed.
