The Executive received the first report for an application for Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) following new arrangements for approval of CIL expenditure as a result of the disestablishment of the Woking Joint Committee. It was noted that the application sought approval for £10,000 additional CIL funds towards new energy efficient underfloor heating at All Saints Church, Woodham. The Joint Committee had previously agreed funding of £40,000 at its meeting on 22 June 2022. It was highlighted that the County Councillor had been consulted on the application, both before the Executive and when the application was considered by the Joint Committee.
The Leader advised that, for future CIL applications for funding, the Executive welcomed the Councillors submitting the applications to attend in support.
That (i) the application submitted by the Ward Councillors for Canalside Ward to secure £10,000 to cover the increased cost of building work undertaken to install underfloor heating at the All Saints Church, Woodham in Canalside Ward be approved; and
(ii) the Strategic Director – Place be authorised to approve payment for the cost of work undertaken to install the underfloor heating, supported by invoices submitted to the Council. The additional CIL funds sought of £10,000 will be drawn from the CIL income available for Canalside Ward, which stands at £303,218.38.
Reason: The CIL application meets the agreed list of requirements that must be met when applying for CIL money to fund local community projects.
