Do you have an idea for a project that will benefit the community in the LLDC area?


#1

The LLDC have launched a second bidding round for the community to bid for funding from the Neighbourhood Priorities Fund, this bidding round will be open for two months, closing on 3rd August.

To support projects with writing their bids LLDC will be holding a workshop for the local community to ask questions and bring any projects that they might be considering submitting halfway through this period on 3rd July 2019 from 3.30-7.30pm . Please feel free to drop by at any time if you have any questions or a project that you are thinking might fit the criteria, register by emailing cilands106@londonlegacy.co.uk, the workshop will take place at the LLDC offices: Level 10, 1 Stratford Place, Montfichet Road, London E20 1EJ.

The Neighbourhood Priorities Fund was set up to administer the Neighbourhood Portion of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). The LLDC CIL Charging Schedule was brought into effect in April 2015, CIL is a charge on development to support delivery of infrastructure in the local area. Government guidance sets out that in an area with no parish councils, a Local Planning Authority that charges CIL should allocate 15% of annual CIL receipts to be spent on projects in consultation with local communities.

How about a community orchard? Or just more planting of edible fruit and nut trees to encourage foraging and serve as a great education resource.
An urban orchard in and around East Village, how about some sweet chestnut and walnut trees as well as edible berries. have look at fruity city.co.uk, captiatgrowth.org & theorchard project.org.uk
Wouldn’t it be great if the lower slopes of Greenway was a huge linear orchard from the QEOP to Becton, a throwback to when large numbers of Eastenders decamped to Kent to harvest the fruit.
