CIL Fund


The second CIL Fund round opens on Monday 4 April 2022, enabling the following groups to bid for between £20,000 and £100,000:

  • constituted community groups, including local councils, and
  • not for profit organisations.

A total of £500,000 is available to support local infrastructure projects which help to either:

  • alleviate the impact of development on an area, or
  • help development to come forward, and
  • focus on supporting children and young people. 

Any eligible group or organisation that would like to apply for CIL funding, needs to submit an Expression of Interest form. This needs to be submitted before 5pm on Thursday 23 June 2022.  Projects that are considered suitable for CIL support, will then be invited to submit a full application. Groups and organisations will be given a further four months to develop this.  Successful projects are expected to be announced in early 2023. 

Anyone wishing to apply should:

  • read the Expression of Interest guidance document
    and
  • complete the Expression of Interest form

The completed form should be sent to cil@cornwall.gov.uk before 5pm on Thursday 23 June 2022.  Any forms received after this deadline will not be accepted.
