Approach to Boroughwide Pot of Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy pdf icon PDF 68 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Having considered an officer report, and a presentation by the Mayor, and the

Chair of the Safer, Stronger Communities Select Committee, the Mayor and

Cabinet agreed that:

 

(1) the progress on agreeing the ward based priorities for the NCIL

programme be noted;

 

(2) the process through which the borough-wide priorities have been

developed be noted; and

 

(3) In regard to the allocation of the Borough-wide NCIL funding:

 

£100,000 be allocated to the development of Council borough-wide Air Quality

initiatives that promote community involvement;

 

an open call for projects is run alongside the ward based process with the

following priorities:

 

initiatives that seek to support local community groups to contributing to

tackling crime and anti-social behaviour

 

provision of high-quality mentoring services and those designed to keep

Lewisham’s children and young people safe from exploitation, violence and

serious youth crime

 

support for people with learning disabilities and/or issues with mental health to

find employment opportunities in order to identify projects for which the

remainder of the fund may be allocated

 

such funding should support services that are borough-wide, as far as

possible, but also provide extra focus on the most deprived wards in the

borough as defined by the Indices of Multiple Deprivation.

 

Minutes:

The report was jointly presented by the Mayor and Councillor Jonathan Slater,

the Cabinet Member for the Community Sector.

 

Councillor Slater highlighted the use of Common Place which had secured a

very high consultation response. This was disputed by Councillors Juliet

Campbell and James Rathbone, the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Safer and

Stronger Communities Select Committee, who believed the Common Place

platform did not attract a representative community response and that a delay

to examine the methodology was required.

 

The Mayor thanked the Select Committee members for their input, but

observed that compared to previous Section 106 consultations, many more

people were involved. He said the consultation had been pioneering and as

such merited a review and could provide valuable lessons learned, but that a

delay did not seem appropriate.

 

Having considered an officer report, and a presentation by the Mayor, and the

Chair of the Safer, Stronger Communities Select Committee, the Mayor and

Cabinet, for the reasons set out in the report by a vote of 10-0:

 

RESOLVED that:

The Mayor received a presentation from representatives of the Church of

England’s Diocese of Southwark, Eric Williamson, Property Development

Surveyor and the Reverend Louise Codrington-Marshall. Mr Williamson stated

Luke’s Church only.

 

The Director of Planning advised the Mayor that Local Listing would not

preclude development but that agreeing all the other proposals and deferring

St Luke’s was possible.

asked officers to engage with them and come back later in the year with a

standalone report on St Luke’s.
