What is Infrastructure?

Infrastructure is defined in pages 9 and 10 of the CIL Charging Schedule.

What type of Infrastructure will the council consider funding?

The Regulation 123 List is an indicative list which sets out those infrastructure projects that Havant Borough Council may wholly or partly fund by CIL. Bids with match funding in place are likely to be considered more favourably.  See the CIL Funding Decision Protocol 2019.

This year it is a new requirement that 50% match funding is necessary for bids made under the Neighbourhood Portion.

How will the council consider my bid for CIL Funding?

After the closing date of 9 August 2019, bids will be considered in accordance with the CIL Funding Protocol 2019.

The bids are timetabled to be taken to Council on 26 February 2020.

What happened in the last round of CIL spending?

Papers were taken to Cabinet on 13 February 2019 and a decision on the bids submitted was taken at the Full Council meeting on 27 February 2019.
