Submitted bids should have regard to the funding available in the relevant ward. However, if there are insufficient funds available in your ward you may still be able to secure funding for a project from the Strategic CIL fund. Awards will be capped at £50,000 and we encourage you to have secured, or be in the process of securing, match funding prior to submitting your bid.
All bids should be consulted with and sought the support of the relevant Ward Councillors and Council departments before submitting. This support should be evidenced with the submitted bid, e.g. copy of email correspondence with ward Councillors and BCP Officers.
