Local Community Infrastructure Fund
The fund is the local element of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), a charge developers pay to build in the borough. The Council must allocate 15% of the money raised towards improving infrastructure, such as schools and transport, which is needed to support new homes and businesses.
It is used to provide, improve, replace, operate or maintain infrastructure, or on anything else affected by development demands. It can also be used to contribute towards schemes or strategic projects, normally funded by the wider CIL fund, that clearly benefit neighbourhoods affected by development.
The fund is split between areas in the borough depending on the level of development. It will only be spent in an area once an appropriate level of funding has been collected.
Residents were invited to share their views on how the Local Community Infrastructure Fund should be spent via an online survey which ended at 5pm on Friday 2 March.
Alternatively residents could email SP>email@example.com or write to:
Strategic Planning and Growth Team
London Borough of Bexley
2 Watling Street
A copy of the consultation was available to view during normal office hours at the Civic Offices or at Bexley libraries.
Responses will be used to inform how the Council prioritises the spending of its local CIL. For more information see Community Infrastructure Levy.
