NB: This definition looks to the purpose and scope of the application. It does not seek to determine whether a group (through its name, purpose or undertakings) is a metropolitan/citywide group or organisation. It looks solely at the targeted area where direct benefit and service delivery are provided.
Groups who by their fundamental nature are metropolitan/citywide providers, such as umbrella organisations, are able to have projects considered at the local level if they fall within the definitions and they are not in receipt of any concurrent funding from the Council that already funds the local services covered in the local application.
