The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge collected by the Royal Borough of Greenwich (RBG) on liable development and paid by developers, which enables RBG to fund new infrastructure.

A portion of the CIL collected (15%) is made available to be spent on local priorities in consultation with the community; this is known as Neighbourhood CIL or the Greenwich Neighbourhood Growth Fund.

The funding guidance can be found here, and includes the local priorities (as identified in the 2017 Residents Survey) to help guide proposals.

For the purposes of collecting and allocating the Greenwich Neighbourhood Growth Fund, the borough has been divided into four neighbourhood areas. These areas are consistent with the Royal Borough’s engagement and consultation areas, and are large enough to ensure there is a sufficient quantum of neighbourhood funding to enable meaningful projects to be delivered, but small enough to be recognisable as the community area.

Round 3 of GNGF will launch later this year. Ahead of this we are carrying out a six week consultation to seek residents and community group’s feedback on the GNGF, and how the process could be improved.

Any changes arising from the review will be implemented ahead of the launch.
