Between £2000 and £50,000 is available for community projects which will improve facilities or services in West Norfolk will be available from January 1.
Groups or organisations can bid for money from the Community Infrastructure Levy.
Richard Blunt, the borough councillor responsible for development and regeneration, said: “The Levy is a great scheme that allows us to bring additional benefits to communities from development in the borough.
“There is a wide scope to the type of projects that can be funded.
“Crucially, it can be used to fund smaller, community-based projects that bring direct benefits to local people. These could include play areas, open spaces, parks and green spaces, education programmes, cultural and sports facilities, community transport schemes, healthcare projects and community safety facilities.
“Groups or organisations who have good ideas, and can be clear about the community benefit of their ideas, should apply to us. It doesn’t have to be a new project. It can be an existing project that needs to be supported.
“We awarded more than £270,000 in the last round to a diverse range of projects, including £18,000 for outdoor gyms in Gaywood and Sedgeford and £7,800 for clearing and renovation of ditches in Holme-next-the-Sea. We are now looking forward to funding a new series of projects in 2022.”
Groups or organisations wishing to apply should contact the clerk of their parish council or visit https://www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/CIL.
