To present to the Cabinet the case for
investment of CIL funding in the development and maintenance of the
Throop Nature Park.
RESOLVED that Cabinet approve the utilisation of: -
(i) £518,000 of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) heathland mitigation resources for the implementation of the project, and
(ii) an additional £100,000 of CIL resources for those elements of the implementation which can’t be funded using heathland mitigation funds; and
(iii) Circa £100K of CIL Heathlands Mitigation resources per year (rising with inflation) for 80 years.
Portfolio Holder: Environment and Place
This development will reduce the environmental impact of leisure on internationally sensitive heathland ecosystems; provide additional attractive leisure space for BCP residents and visitors; increase biodiversity and bio-resilience in the Throop area; and enable the commencement and occupation of large-scale residential schemes of 50 units and over in Bournemouth, as part of the Big Plan.
