Community Infrastructure Levy

When land owners and developers build properties in England & Wales they can be liable to pay a levy, which can then be used by local authorities to help deliver infrastructure improvements to support the development of the area.

Improvements could include improving parks, schools and leisure facilities for example.

Lichfield District Council have announced that they have a £300,000 pot of money to spend and they are inviting applications for projects that would benefit the area.

We know that circa £67,000 of this pot of money came from the housing development at Milestone Way in Burntwood so it is essential that projects in Burntwood benefit from at least this amount of investment – if not more.

Burntwood Action Group will be putting forward suggestions to Burntwood Town Council & Lichfield District Council and we would also welcome any ideas you may have as to how this money should be invested to benefit our area.

We all want a Better Burntwood so please let us know what you think we need to do – and we will take it from there!
