CONSULTATION ON GIPSY HILL WARD
From: Lambeth council’s CLIP team:
What are your priorities for your streets, open spaces and places? Tell us by completing a short survey online by 23 December 2016.
Part of the funding needed for local improvements can come from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). This is a tax paid by developers on new buildings, such as housing and office developments.
The consultation area consists of the wider Norwood area covering Gipsy Hill, Knight’s Hill and Thurlow Park wards, including residential neighbourhoods. Within these areas, any developments that may occur will generate CIL income. We want residents to benefit from this income, so we are seeking your views to help guide future spend.
Priorities you may want to suggest can include, but are not limited to, improvements to your streets, open spaces and community places; or support for jobs, training and youth facilities.
The final priorities will be published in early 2017 within the Norwood Co-operative Local Investment Plan (CLIP).
For more information and to complete the short survey please go to lambeth.gov.uk/gkt-wards.
Ideas from the Masterplan refresh, Commonplace, StreetWorks and other recent local consultations, which mostly focused on West Norwood and Tulse Hill town centres, will be included within the final list of priorities. We are now keen to hear your priorities on the wider area.
When Lambeth council give planning permission for new developments, developers provide the council with payments to fund local improvements.
At a time when resources are scarce, it’s vital the council invests these resources wisely.
If you live, work or visit the Norwood area (Knight’s Hill, Gipsy Hill and Thurlow Park wards), the Council would like to find out your priorities for investing these funds.
How to find out more about your area
Find out more information about the area by visiting the Pilot Local Data Platform and reading the Local Area Leaflet. These provide facts and figures about the area including residents’ views and where projects are planned or underway. Please note that the pilot platform is new and may become slow during updates!
How you can have your say!
The consultation opened on Monday 7 November and you can tell us about your priorities by completing a short survey online by Friday 23 December 2016.
We are also carrying out targeted face to face interviews in the area.
Please complete the Norwood CLIP area survey online.
What will happen next:
Priorities will be published in a Cooperative Local Investment Plan (or CLIP for short) in early 2017. The CLIP will be used by the Council to inform investment decisions in the Norwood CLIP area (Gipsy Hill, Knight’s Hill and Thurlow Park wards) for the next three years.
