Developers in Plymouth pay a Community Infrastructure Levy which is held in the City Change Fund. The criteria for that fund require the money to be used for “the provision, improvement, replacement, operation, or maintenance of infrastructure or anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area (Regulation 59C of the CIL regulations 2013).”
The City Council committed £60,000 of the City Change Fund to the Crowdfund Plymouth campaign. That money can be pledged on projects that “help improve the city and make it a better place to live, work and play“. Suitable projects are eligible for matched funding from Plymouth Council of up to 50 per cent of the project cost, up to a maximum of £5,000.
