Members of the Neighbourhood Forum invited ideas for submission to the current round of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding at our AGM on 6 February. These have been combined with other project proposals from members, and a short-list drawn up following discussion with Hyde Park Ward Councillors on 14 February and a walkabout with Westminster Council’s Highways team on 17 February.
