A total of £826,750 was awarded to community projects across the borough in Round 1.
Applications are now closed for round 2. The results have now been announced.
In Richmond, 15% of the Community Infrastructure Levy is to be spent locally in areas which have a Village Plan. According to the CIL regulations, in areas where a Neighbourhood Plan has been adopted this is increased to 25%.
The Community Fund will be allocated to spend on local priorities which address the ‘demand that development places on an area.’
Areas in the borough have been grouped into neighbourhoods to recognise wider areas where development may impact and to maximise the amount available to be spent locally. Each neighbourhood has a Community Fund ‘pot’ collected from the developments that have taken place in each area.
The table below shows the amount currently available per neighbourhood.
|Neighbourhood area||Amount available|
|Richmond, Richmond Hill, Kew||£206,086|
|Twickenham, St Margarets, East Twickenham, Whitton and Heathfield, Strawberry Hill||£24,228|
|Hampton, Hampton Wick, Hampton Hill and Teddington||£237,840|
|East Sheen, Mortlake and Barnes||£24,979|
|Ham and Petersham||£56,666|
Applications are now closed for round 2. The results will be announced in August 2018.
