Cooperative Local Investment Plans (CLIPs)
The council’s CLIPs process facilitates consultation with local communities on their priorities for investing Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) in their area.
The way that developers fund improvements to facilities such as parks, roads and schools in the local area has changed. This process was managed through Section 106 agreements (S106) but will now primarily take place through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for new developments. A percentage of CIL, known as Neighbourhood CIL (NCIL), will be invested in local projects.
In 2014, Lambeth’s Cabinet agreed to:
Increase the percentage of Neighbourhood CIL (NCIL) for local projects from 15% to 25%
Develop Co-operative Local Investment Plans (CLIPs) to give people a greater say in priorities and proposals for spending Neighbourhood CIL
Establish seven CLIP areas along ward boundaries to facilitate community consultation at a workable local and administrative level.
Lambeth Co-operative Local Investment Plan (CLIP) areas:
- Waterloo CLIP area: Bishop’s ward
- North Lambeth CLIP area: Prince’s and Oval wards
- Stockwell CLIP area: Larkhall, Stockwell and Vassall wards
- Clapham CLIP area: Clapham Town, Clapham Common, Thornton and Ferndale wards
- Brixton CLIP area: Brixton Hill, Tulse Hill, Coldharbour and Herne Hill wards
- Streatham CLIP area: Streatham Hill, St Leonard’s, Streatham Wells and Streatham South wards
- Norwood CLIP area: Knight’s Hill, Thurlow Park and Gipsy Hill wards
Using these boundaries, the council will consult with local communities on their priorities for investing Neighbourhood CIL in their area. Local councillors will review this feedback and agree final priorities which will be published in a CLIP. The council will use the CLIP to guide future investment decisions over five years.
