Thank you to all those who responded to the Community Fund Consultation. In all, 2,394 valid responses were received from residents who participated from across the borough.

The decision on funding applications was announced on Monday 3rd September 2018 and can be found both on the Council website and in the relevant cabinet report. The results of the consultation can be found in the Cabinet Report.

The Council awarded funds to a total of £549,799 with only one unsuccessful project in Ham which has formed part of a wider Liveable Neighbourhoods bid.




The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tax collected by Richmond upon Thames Council and paid by developers.

In Richmond, a portion of the total tax collected in an area will be spent on local priorities. This is the neighbourhood portion of CIL; the Community Fund (formerly known as the Village Planning Fund).

Sixteen projects were successful in their application to Round 1 of the fund. A total of £826,750 was awarded to community projects across the borough.

A total of 28 applications were received in Round 2 and of these nine fully met the required criteria and are now subject to public consultation. More detail about the nine Round 2 projects can be found attached at the bottom of the webpage.
