Issue details

The Leeds Community Infrastructure Levy - Spending of the Neighbourhood Fund and Other Spending Matters

1.  To approve the content of the new Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Neighbourhood Fund spending guidance, and that the guidance is adopted by all Community Committees in making decisions on their CIL Neighbourhood Fund spending.  This includes continuing to work closely with Town and Parish Councils and other community groups to maximise the use of CIL resources.  All communities will therefore be impacted, in relation to the spending mechanisms for up to 25% of the total CIL received.


2.  To agree the minor changes to the Regulation 123 List.


3.  To agree to remove the Council’s policy allowing discretionary charitable relief for investment activities.  This will only impact on a very small number of organisations.
