Does your project need this funding?

December 19 2018

Bishopston Cotham and Redland Community Partnership Forum (BCR CP) are inviting groups and individuals to submit suggestions for projects to be supported by the CIL funding available for our area.

CIL is Community Infrastructure Levy, a financial contribution made by developers for infrastructure to support local development. The consultation process will run until April when the councillors will agree on which projects they would like to select from the list. We will also be consulting on the local priorities for the area, which will then be part of the criteria which will inform the choice of projects.

So, get your thinking caps on. And come to the meeting in February bringing your suggestions for infrastructure projects and priority issues for our area. 

The community consultation on last year’s CIL allocation was not effective and BCR CP have made suggestions for improvements in the process this year. They are intending to be more proactive in the process of consultation, selection and review of the projects to be considered by the area committee. There are very limited funds in our area because of the lack of new building space so it is important that the funding is allocated effectively. BCR CP need your support to do this, and aim to achieve support for the preferred projects. 

Following feedback at the last meeting, community groups will be asked to give their updates at the beginning of the meeting. 

The meeting takes place on Monday 11 February,  from 7pm - 9pm, at Redland Green Bowls Club, Redland Court Road, BS6 7HE.
