Groups invited to bid for share of £300,000 fund to boost infrastructure across Lichfield and Burntwood

Organisations in Lichfield and Burntwood are being invited to bid for a £300,000 fund designed to boost infrastructure in the area.

The money is being dished out by Lichfield District Council from the Community Infrastructure Levy, which developers pay to support initiatives in the area.

The funding could be spent on improvements to roads, local parks, schools and sports and leisure facilities, as well as flood mitigation, health facilities, social and community venues and low carbon initiatives.

Councillor Ian Pritchard, Cabinet member for economic growth, environment and development services, said: “We’re encouraging organisations across the district that have infrastructure projects in the pipeline to find out if they could apply for Community Infrastructure Levy funds.

“This pot of money is a valuable resource to help us to make sure that local development is sustainable and that we have the infrastructure in place to meet the need of our growing population.”

Successful applicants will need to show there is a local need for their project and that the public will benefit from it, as well as showing the project is achievable and offers value for money.

For more details visit www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/cil. Expressions of interest should be emailed to developmentplans@lichfielddc.gov.uk by 5pm on September 16.

    You can almost hear the sound of the CoE completing the forms.

    Another pot of council money for them to plunder.
