Warminster Town Councillors Choose Three Schemes To Fund.

Warminster Town Councillors have selected their top three projects for funding by the Town Council’s share of the Community Infrastructure Levy.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a sum paid by developers on new housing developments in Warminster. 75% of the money goes to Wiltshire Council and 25% goes to Warminster Town Council.

The three projects chosen by Town Councillors are:
• Enhancement of skatepark facilities in the Lake Pleasure Grounds (Town Park).
• Upgrading of the paddling pool in the Lake Pleasure Grounds (Town Park).
• Additional minor highways improvements in Warminster.

Councillor Chris Robbins, Chairman of Warminster Town Council’s Finance and Assets Committee said: “The purpose of the Community Infrastructure Levy is to help address the demands that development places on Warminster. These three projects will be visible and tangible and wouldn’t realistically be funded from other resources without a contribution from the Community Infrastructure Levy. I am pleased that local people will be able to see positive benefits from new housing being built locally. Once these projects get underway and we receive more CIL funding, we will consider what next to add to the short list.”
