CIL graphic featuring a calculatorWe are currently seeking community feedback on a number of local applications that have been submitted for Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funds in Hersham. They are being considered outside of the annual cycle of applications as work would need to be completed within a specific timeframe if projects are succesful.

Elmbridge Borough Council has been collecting CIL since April 2013. CIL is a charge on some forms of  new development that raises funds towards infrastructure that is needed to support new development. The Council is allocating up to 25% of available CIL to be spent on infrastructure that is required in the communities where development took place. For projects to be eligible for CIL funding they must meet the following spending criteria:

  1. Provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure
  2. Anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands of development

As required in legislation we are now seeking the views of the local community.  Applications have been submitted by local providers or by the relevant authority. CIL funding can also be used to meet funding gaps that local authorities have in relation to responding to additional pressures.

A Spending Board made up of local Councillors will meet at the end of September to discuss the applications submitted and to make spending decisions. Survey responses received will be compiled and presented to the relevant Spending Board in order that feedback can inform decision making at the meeting.

A summary of each project is available to view below.  Please take the opportunity to provide your views on the applications being considered in your settlement area on the survey response forms included. Any comments provided will be included in the report to the Spending Board but will not be attributable to a specific respondent.
