What is the Local Fund?

A proportion of the money received through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) will be made available to spend on local projects in the neighbourhoods where development has been built. This is known as the Reigate & Banstead CIL Local Fund.

The CIL Local Fund can be spent in a variety of ways for example improving the nearby community hall, providing new playground equipment at a local green space, upgrading walking and cycling routes to local schools, or enhancing local shopping parades.

In Horley, and in Salfords & Sidlow, where there is an existing Parish or Town Council the CIL Local funding generated from developments in those areas will be passed to them to spend. In the rest of the Borough, the money will be retained by the Borough Council to be spent in the area in which it was raised, in consultation with local communities and ward Councillors. The amount of money available through the Local Fund in each area will vary, depending upon how much new development is being built.

CIL Local Fund 2019 Survey

We held a survey in September/October 2019 to understand your priorities for spending CIL Local funds and for project suggestions.

Next steps

Priorities and suggestions for Horley Town Council and Salfords & Sidlow Parish Council have been passed on to the Town and Parish Councils.

Please see the attached summary for the priorities identified by the communities in each area
