COUNCIL bosses are looking for view on its Localities Bid Fund.

Earlier this year almost £300,000 was allocated to projects across the region – following a public vote.

But new rules had to be drawn up for round two of the scheme after only 28 local causes applied for cash.

Now Scottish Borders Council is hoping to get feedback on the process for the future.

A spokesperson said: "The fund was designed to support projects and initiatives that address local priorities and benefit local towns, villages and communities.

"A total of 40 community initiatives received funding across five localities following a public vote.

An online survey is now available on the council's consultation hub until January 10 at

"Paper copies are available on request from or by calling 01835 826626."
