From 2019 to 2020, the projects and types of infrastructure which we propose to fully or part fund through CIL will be listed within the annual Infrastructure Funding Statement. Infrastructure projects or types which are identified to be funded through Section 106 agreements will continue to be funded accordingly.
Prior to the regulatory changes, our Regulation 123 list outlined the infrastructure priorities for CIL expenditure.
A proportion of CIL receipts from a development are allocated to the wards and neighbourhood areas where the development occurred. This amounts to 25% of receipts in areas where a Neighbourhood Plan has been adopted, and 15% of receipts in other areas. These funds are to be spent on local infrastructure projects required to support development.
In consultation with local communities, ward councillors can apply for this funding and work with providers and resident groups to deliver identified projects. The below map shows the proportion of CIL income that has been allocated to each of the borough’s wards and neighbourhood areas to date.
