Warbleton Parish Council is today launching a Community Survey to find out residents views on how to prioritise funds that the Council has received from the CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy).
For more information please visit the WPC website page: http://www.warbletonparishcouncil.co.uk/community/warbleton-parish-council-18007/parish-community-survey/ . . . That page also has a link to the survey.
Alternatively look out for a leaflet which will be delivered to all households in the Parish over the next few days. The survey will close on 31st January 2021, following which the results will be debated by the Parish Council’s CIL Committee.
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which can be levied by local authorities on new development in their area. It allows local authorities to collect money from developments to assist with the delivery infrastructure that is required to support development in around the district. Under the requirement, 15% of the CIL collected as a result of development is passed to the relevant Town/ Parish Council. This is called the ‘meaningful proportion’.
Warbleton Parish Council is interested in understanding more about how our local community feel we should focus it’s efforts and allocation of CIL funds over the coming years. They “seek your feedback and invite you to take part in (the) online survey.”
(The Council Notes: “We will only be able to fund a small number of projects. For the ideas we do take forward, we will need to seek additional funds and partnerships to meet the costs.” )
Some ideas that Warbleton Parish Council CIL committee are considering allocating CIL funds towards are outlined below (as indicated on the WPC website:).
- Ongoing maintenance and purchase of essential parish noticeboards, fingerposts and benches in the Parish
- Provide picnic tables on Rushlake Green for residents and visitors across the Parish to enjoy, promoting well-being and
supporting local businesses
- One-off sum to each village hall to boost wi-fi provision and support hall hirers needs
- Commission traffic surveys in the Parish to assess the ongoing impact of local development
- Install electric car charging points at strategic locations in the Parish to support greener energy use
- Provide biochar kilns for community use (see attached information on the web page) to support greener
communities and reduce our carbon footprint
- Create a Warbleton Parish walking & cycling routes map in partnership with local community organisations and local council
to promote health and well-being
- Provide a pétanque court on Rushlake Green to promote health, well-being and reduce social isolation
- Improve the ‘Well’ area at Punnett’s Town to enhance the village scene e.g. bench, low wall
