What is CIL and NCIL?
• The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy that local authorities can choose to charge on certain new development.
• CIL must be spent on infrastructure to support the development of an area, such as for schools, hospitals, roads, open space, and leisure facilities.
• Lewisham has been collecting CIL since 2015:
• 2015/16: £1,440,463.66
• 2016/17: £4,487,774.86
• 2017/18: £3,359,091.04
• The CIL Regulations enable the Council to set aside 15% of CIL receipts (25% in areas with an adopted neighbourhood plan) to spend on priorities that should be agreed with the local community in areas where development is taking place (NCIL).
• Mayor & Cabinet agreed to allocate 25% of CIL to NCIL in all wards

Ward boundaries changes update- Cllr Stephen Penfold
Cllr Stephen Penfold highlighted the following the main points:
· The Local Government Boundary Commission - LGBC have proposed a new ward scheme for Lewisham
· The LGBC are consulting on their proposals – the closing date for submissions is 2 March 2020
· Local residents and organisations are encouraged to respond to the LGBC’s proposals
· The Council will also be making our own submission. A working group of councillors will take the lead in creating the council’s response. It will be debated within the group and voted on at full council in February
· Councillors are able and encouraged to consult LAs and residents but we recommend any resident or group with an opinion on the LGBC’s proposals should submit their response directly via the consultation portal https://www.lgbce.org.uk/all-reviews/greater-london/greater-london/lewisham
