Have say on which project in Gedling borough should benefit from cash raised by developer levy

People in Gedling borough are being given the chance to have their say on where money raised from a levy on developers could be spent.

The two projects shortlisted are seeking cash so they can move forward – and now the public can help decide which should benefit.

A car park extension at Gedling Country Park would cost up to £100,000 – and is up for consideration.

The money could also be spent on new changing room facilities at Lambley Lane Recreation Ground – costing up to £40k.

Once the public consultation is over, the money would be allocated to the chosen project from monies received from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) in non-parish areas.



The money, 15% of what has been collected from developments outside of the Parish areas of the borough, has to be spent on priorities that should be agreed with the local community in areas where development has taken place.

The council has sought potential infrastructure projects that could be part or wholly funded by the neighbourhood funding.  Nine projects had been submitted and assessed, the assessments carried out recommends that two projects are funded.

A spokesman for Gedling Borough Council said: “We are inviting you to have your say on whether you agree, or disagree, with how we propose to use the CIL Non-Parish Neighbourhood Funding.

“Your comments will be considered as we prepare our final recommendations, before a final decision is made by Cabinet in March 2019.”
