Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust

2015 CIL Support

Consultation on 2015 Community Infrastructure Levy funding applications

At the AGM we approved submitting our proposals for financial support for footpath maintenance, and for the acquisition of a museum display cabinet for the new library to display Cobham and related historic artefacts following the closure of the Elmbridge museum to visitors. We have suggested that we fund 50% and the Elmbridge community infrastructure levy (CIL) the other 50%.

Decisions will be taken on June 16th, but in advance of this the community is invited to show their support for the projects.

Because the demands on the CIL funds could outweigh the funds available due to some large requests, it will be vital if we are to succeed, for our members and supporters to register their support for our projects. Thus may we ask you and your like minded friends to register your support by commenting on both the footpath maintenance project and the museum display project by either following the steps below or downloading the Cobham CIL Response Form from here (.doc Word Document format) which should be completed and then sent as an attachment by email or sent by post to the Elmbridge Planning Policy team (address details are shown on the last page of the Form).

Responses must be received by the Elmbridge Planning Policy team by 22 May 2015.
