Applications for Ward NCIL funding can only be made by Rushey Green residents; including ward councillors, businesses and groups or organisations based in the ward. Applicants will need to demonstrate that 90 percent of beneficiaries live directly within Rushey Green.

This fund is a chance to provide real improvement directly for your area

What is NCIL Funding and where does it come from?

The funding comes from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), which the Council charges on new developments in Lewisham - it's a form of developer tax. Neighbourhood CIL (NCIL) is a proportion of that money that is used to invest in community infrastructure in the local area, helping to address the impact of new developments on local residents.

How much money is available to the Rushey Green ward

The Rushey Green ward has been allocated £253,097 of NCIL funding to spend improving your community!

We have grants for small, medium and large scale projects from under £10,000
to over £250,000 that can be delivered by individual organisations, or in partnership. This money is separate from the Catford Town Centre Regeneration.

The deadline for applications is 21 November 2022.
