Community Grants to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III

Deal Town Council is pleased to offer a community celebration grant fund of £2,000 to help the local community celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.

Local groups, organisations and members of public organising street events can apply for a grant of up to £100 towards their local celebrations.

Applications will be received from residents’ associations or residents’ groups holding street parties or events in Deal and from charities, business groups or civic societies holding community events.

Grants received can contribute towards making your event even more memorable. Whether this is for decorations, making the event accessible or even paying for important safety equipment for road and/or park closures. 

Apply now 

Applications will open on 1st March and close on 24th March.

All applications will be considered during the following week at the same time and not on a first received basis.

About the application process 

Applications will be assessed and prioritised based on the following criteria:
• How many Deal residents will benefit from the event
• Inclusion of match funding of the event – details should be included in with your application
• Whether all documentation requested within the application was provided
• To ensure funding is distributed fairly across the Town

 To receive funding for a street party or park event, you must receive permission, as required, to hold this event and for any associated road closures. Find out more information about holding a street party or park event, please see the below links:

Guidance on how to organise a street party can be found on the website.

You can apply to close a road for a street party and to attach lightweight bunting or flags to streetlights to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III. (the deadline is Friday 3 March)

For all street parties in the Dover District, please let Dover District Council know by completing the Street Party event notification form.

You will receive an acknowledgement email once we receive your application, and you will be notified no later than 31 March if your application has been successful. The council’s decision is final and there will be no right of appeal. While this funding is a grant and not a loan, the council reserves the right to request the funds be returned if the event you planned does not proceed for any reason.
