CIL projects in Hampstead Town ward

Hampstead Town ward was awarded £700,000 of the proceeds of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), a tax on developers. The money must be spent on infrastructure projects that help to meet the needs of the local community. Local councillors have the final say in allocating the funds, in consultation with neighbourhood forums and local communities. In order to help councillors assess the degree of public support for particular projects that are put forward by the community, the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum has carried out three surveys in which local residents can offer their opinions.
