Sutton Council is asking for ideas that could benefit our area.
When developers create new dwellings or retail space within the borough they usually pay a levy to the Council which can be used towards these improvements. This has been put into a Neighbourhood Fund, to address the demands which development place on local areas.
Projects might include the renovation of a community centre, planting of street trees or the installation of new play equipment. Projects must involve improving infrastructure which benefits the local community. Projects eligible for a Neighbourhood Fund allocation must be deliverable, value for money, supported by the community and consider their impact on equality. They should also support the Council’s Ambitious for Sutton priorities:
We want to know what areas of improvement are most important to you and whether there are any projects you would like to be considered for funding. The consultation period runs until 4th October 2020.
