Neighbourhood portion round 1
Round closed in July 2021.
The Panel awarded £442,734 to 31 projects across 17 wards.
Councillor Philip Broadhead, BCP Council Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Development, Growth and Regeneration:
“It is great to see funds raised from development have such a positive impact on local community projects. Being part of this process is really enjoyable as we know that the money allocated really does mean a lot to the projects and groups who benefit. The vibrancy of our communities is central to our Big Plan, so providing council funding to support local projects makes a positive contribution towards achieving our goals and ensuring the BCP area is one of the best coastal places to live in the world.”
Councillor Jane Kelly, BCP Council Lead Member for Communities:
“The panel was so excited to see the range of really worthwhile project bids submitted for this round of Neighbourhood CIL funding resulting in a very significant amount of money moving into community groups and charities. Where there were insufficient funds to help everyone there were difficult decisions to be made. Anyone who has not had their project supported this time is encouraged to work on their bids and try again in the next round if further funds are available or look to working with neighbouring wards. We are now looking forward to seeing the successful projects progressing and giving much needed benefits to local communities.”
