Epsom & Ewell Borough Council to carry out regeneration after receiving Community Infrastructure Levy funds


Friday, 10 March, 2023

Epsom & Ewell Borough Council have awarded over £212,000 in Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding to regeneration projects in the borough. 

Funding has been allocated on the basis of the health and recreational benefits the projects will have on the community, improving accessibility and helping biodiversity and the ecosystem.

The projects include replacing the playground equipment at Rosebery Park and Alexandra Recreational Ground, repairing the pathway at Nonsuch Park, regenerating the grounds at Horton Art Centre and improving Stamford Green Pond.

Work in Rosebery Park and Alexandra Recreational Ground started in February, while the repairs at Nonsuch Park will commence this month (March).

Timescales for the improvements to Horton Art Centre and Stamford Green Pond will be set in the near future.

Councillor John Beckett, Chair of the Environment and Safe Communities Committee, said, “Our parks and open spaces are a vital and much-loved resource for everyone in the borough. They not only offer a space for people to have fun, relax and spend time with friends and family, but also provide a valuable habitat for a diverse range of flora and fauna.

“We are very pleased to have receive the CIL funding for the projects across the borough, which will ensure our open spaces remain a pleasant environment for all our residents and wildlife.”
