CIL Fund


The current CIL Fund round is now closed to Expressions of Interest. 

Expressions of Interest were sought for local infrastructure projects which either:

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

We received 124 Expressions of Interest between 4 April and 23 June 2022 seeking £6.6m of support from an available £500,000.  Of these, 34 have been invited to submit a full application by 31 October 2022.  It is anticipated that a decision will be made early 2023 as to which of these will receive CIL funding.  A list of the successful projects and the amount of funding awarded will be published on this webpage.
