Funding For Community Projects

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge payable by developers to local councils as part of the planning process. Elmbridge Council is required to allocate a proportion of the CIL funds it collects (currently 15%) on local infrastructure improvements to mitigate the impacts of development locally.

Applications can be submitted up until 16 June 2019, and after the closing date, applicants who have applied will have a further four weeks to provide any outstanding details needed for a valid application. These applicants will be invited to give a presentation about their proposals to a Spending Board made up of local Councillors later in the year. The Strategic Spending Board will be first in early September, and the Local Spending Boards will follow throughout September and into early October.

Anyone interested in applying can find the application forms, guidance notes and information about CIL in the planning section of the Elmbridge Council website.
