Have your say on how to spend CIL money

posted 7 Feb 2019, 08:52 by lewknorparish@hotmail.co.uk
Following the new Manor Close development (off Weston Road), Lewknor parish council will be receiving a total of just over £23,000 over 18 months.
This money comes from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which is a charge that local authorities can set on new developments in order to raise money to help fund infrastructure, facilities and services.
Parish councillors are now asking residents if there are any projects they would like to have considered. There are rules and SODC will have to approve how we use the money (which must be spent within 5 years of receipt).
This is a summary of what it can be used for: A range of infrastructure, including transport, flood defences, schools, hospitals and other health and social care facilities, play areas, parks and green spaces, cultural and sports facilities. It is intended to focus on the provision of new infrastructure and should not be used to remedy pre-existing deficiencies in infrastructure provision unless those deficiencies will be made more severe by new development. The levy can be used to increase the capacity of existing infrastructure or to repair failing existing infrastructure, if that is necessary to support development.
So if you have any suggestions, please email: lewknorparish@hotmail.co.uk or talk to any of the parish councillors.
