8. Report of Community Resources Manager (Item 6)


The Committee noted the process followed to develop Outline and Full Proposals for funding from CIL and S106 resources as set out in the report. The Committee noted the CIL available to allocate at end August 2019 as £373,269.64 to the Old Market Neighbourhood Development Plan area and £896,947.92 to the general AC4 area. The next step was to consider the Stage 2 Full Proposals as set out in the Community Resources Manager’s report (see table below).


Tree planting using S106 contributions: The Committee was advised by the Tree Bristol Officer that it’s difficult to assign time-limited S106 contributions to replacement tree planting sites within the boundaries of AC4 due to lack of available sites in the AC4 area.. Tree Bristol requested permission to look to available sites for planting outside AC4 geographical area which fitted the legal conditions of time-limited S106 tree funds – usually within a one mile radius of the contribution site. Committee also advised that some of the S106 contributions set out in the Tree Bristol proposal could also be used to support the Ashley Green Link proposal and the Felix Road proposal, which would reduce the CIL budget contribution to those projects.

Committee agreed that the Community Resource Manager would oversee spend in respect of balancing s.106 with CIL.


CIL/S106 bid Selection Process

Regarding the selection process for choosing proposals to fund it was agreed that each proposal –


1.     Would be considered on merit;


2.     The Committee would allow an over commit on total CIL spend, pending future CIL funding;


3.     Would be prioritised for commencement as appropriate/agreed;


4.    The Committee would remove 10% contingency where appropriate to enable the committee to support the broadest range of proposals.


The Committee approved the following allocations of CIL and S106, with conditions as set out below:
