Launch of CIL Funds Consultation

Marylebone Forum has developed a short survey about allocation of CIL funds, to be launched at Marylebone Christmas Lights Switch On. If you live, work or study here, have your say on local priorities to spend £670k CIL funds. The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tax that local authorities charge developers for infrastructure needs arising from new developments. As a designated Forum, Marylebone Forum has an advisory role to Westminster City Council on the allocation of 15% of CIL funds in Marylebone. To date, £4.5m has been collected from new developments, so the Forum can advise on the allocation of £670k towards local projects (which must meet WCC criteria for funding).

Hard copies are available – please use the Contact page to request. The Forum will be circulating the survey through local amenity societies, business groups, places of worship, schools etc to encourage the widest local participation possible. Please complete the survey and encourage your colleagues and neighbours to do so...
