Neighbourhood CIL Funding

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Funding Bids. 

Neighbourhood (NCIL) Fund

CIL is a levy that allows the Council to raise funds from developers in recognition of the fact that new development creates pressure on the borough’s infrastructure.  In Epsom and Ewell, the Council has decided to allocate these funds across the whole Borough, having regard to where development has taken place or is planned to take place.

The Council’s CIL spending protocol sets out how CIL spending is administered in Epsom and Ewell.  

On the 18 January 2024 the Councils Licencing and Planning Policy Committee approved the Epsom and Ewell CIL Spending Protocol, this document sets out the Epsom and Ewell Borough specific protocol governing the process and criteria for selecting infrastructure projects for funding through CIL.
