available and should help groups, if they wish, to make revised applications.


Points to note:

The next deadline for ICP applications will be
31 December 2009.

The revised application form and guide are now

Details relating to the successful proponents
will be posted there when available, as well as on the BCCA site.

Staff in the BCCA office expect to offer, as we
did with the earlier round of submissions, a review service intended to help
strengthen your application. Details will be posted before long.
