S106 and Community Infrastructure Awards
There will be a joint meeting of the GBCP Board, sub group members and others to assess the 11 expressions of interest in the use of our current Section 106 & Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funds.
The meeting will start at 7pm on Monday 6 February 2017 at the Amerind Grove Care Home, 124-132 Raleigh Road, Ashton, BS3 1QN
The meeting and process will be similar to our previous approach to Community Chest recommendations:
- Open to Board, sub group members and residents living in Southville and Bedminster… (those present will be asked to declare any interests)
- Applicants are welcome to attend to provide any additional info/context, but attendance is not mandatory. Applicants may not vote on their application.
- Those present will score the applications against the Partnership’s overarching priorities (as reflected in the application forms)
- The outcome/recommendations will be taken to a Neighbourhood Committee meeting (ie the four elected councillors) scheduled for 7pm 15 Feb (at the same venue)
If you want to see a summary of the applications contact Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org . Please note that summaries are no substitute for looking through the full application as they inevitable leave out important factors. Full copies of all the applications will be available on the night of the meeting.
What Happens Next?
Most people will be aware that BCC is in serious financial difficulties as central government support is being withdrawn, even though the cost of local services is going up, especially, but not only, those to support older people. One of the casualties in this process will be the 14 Neighbourhood Partnerships. It is expected that financial support, eg for officer time, hire of rooms and other things will be withdrawn over the next two years.
