The Neighbourhood Priorities fund was set up to administer the Neighbourhood Portion of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). The LLDC CIL Charging Schedule was brought into effect in April 2015, CIL is a charge on development to support delivery of infrastructure in the local area. Government guidance sets out that in an area with no parish councils, a Local Planning Authority that charges CIL should allocate 15% of annual CIL receipts to be spent on projects in consultation with local communities.
The bidding round launches on Monday 4 June and applications will remain open for two months, closing on 4th August. For more information on the Neighbourhood Priorities Fund, including how to apply, click here.
