Neighbourhood Plan area
Note: There has been no levy collected in the Ham and Petersham Neighbourhood Plan geographic area since the Plan was ratified in 2019/20.
The Local Area Fund for the Richmond Riverside, Ham and Petersham ward is an alternative source of Council funding for community projects.
In Richmond, 15% of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is to be spent locally in areas without a Neighbourhood Plan. According to the CIL regulations, in areas where a Neighbourhood Plan has been adopted this is increased to 25%.
The Community Fund will be allocated to spend on local priorities which address the demand that development places on an area.
Areas in the borough have been grouped into East and West of the River Thames, and Ham and Petersham as a separate Neighbourhood Plan area. This means that each area has a Community Fund pot collected from the developments that have taken place in each area.
