Community Infrastructure Levy

The Town Council receives 15% of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) receipts from certain liable developments within the Town Council area. The CIL is administered by the Planning Service within Caerphilly County Borough Council.

To date the Town Council has received £43,419 to spend on local projects.

Expenditure of £8,000 has been incurred on the Welsh National Anthem Memorial Artwork at The Twyn, which is 50% of the total cost, with the other 50% coming from Caerphilly County Borough Council. A contribution of £5,000 has been made to the electric vehicle charging points within The Twyn car park. A contribution of £6,120 has helped fund the upgrade of the floodlights at St Martin’s Church. Funding of £2,500 was made towards the costs of keeping the bus station public toilets open although they have since been closed pending redevelopment of Caerphilly station. Expenditure of £5,800 met the cost of 20mph signage at Cwrt Rawlin Primary School.

Suggestions for future projects can be sent to the Town Clerk but they should have a lasting benefit for both residents and visitors.
