Come to the launch to learn how to bid for the money
Councillor Theo Dennison, London Borough of Hounslow’s Cabinet Member for Finance & Citizen Engagement invites you to the CIL launch event to learn how you can bid for a "big new pot of cash" to support projects recommended by local residents and community organisations.
The Community Infrastructure Levy (“CIL”) will provide hundreds of local charities, voluntary and community groups and residents with the resources they need to make a positive difference in their local area for local community projects like skills and training; transport, public spaces, art and leisure; and improvements to educational, health, community, leisure, cultural and faith facilities.
Councillor Dennison, explains: “We are really impressed by the tremendous work done by the voluntary and community sector and the fantastic results they achieve, so we are determined to do more to help support their wonderful efforts by ensuring people get a chance to direct where money is spent to improve and benefit their area.
The event will start at 6 pm on Thursday, 13 July 2017 at the Holiday Inn, Commerce Road, Brentford TW8 8GA, where information and advice will be available on how community organisations can bid for a share of the money.
For further information, please contact the council’s Infrastructure Team at CIL_S106@hounslow.gov.uk
Local authorities must allocate at least 15% of levy receipts to spend on priorities that should be agreed with the local community in areas where development is taking place. It is intended to focus on the provision of new infrastructure rather than repair existing.
