How much Neighbourhood CIL is available in Westminster?

Westminster is divided into 21 neighbourhood areas. They have undergone a statutory designation process and do not necessarily correspond with the council’s ward boundaries. At present, 15 of the 21 neighbourhood areas have designated neighbourhood forums. These are bodies which represent the local community and are tasked with preparing neighbourhood plans and looking after the local Neighbourhood CIL budget. View the CIL areas:

Queen’s Park Community Council has special status as a de facto Parish Council for the purposes of the CIL Regulations. This means that Neighbourhood CIL is passed directly to the Community Council, who are obliged to report to WCC on its spending on an annual basis.

The following areas do not have neighbourhood forums, but are still designated as neighbourhood areas that can apply for funding:

  • Bayswater
  • Little Venice and Maida Vale
  • South East Bayswater
  • Ebury Bridge
  • Churchill Gardens Estate

There are also parts of the city not covered by a designated neighbourhood area, but which continue to collect neighbourhood CIL.

Details about how Neighbourhood CIL is calculated can be found in the CIL Spending Policy Statement.
