Local Community Improvement Fund 2023 - now open for submissions

Do you have a community project or improvement that needs a funding boost to make it happen?   

Apply for a Local Community Improvement Fund (LCIF) Grant before the deadline of 31 January 2023.  

It's easy to do online - for more information, criteria and the application form visit the Local Community Improvement Fund page on our website.

Ward councillors can also make bids to the LCIF. 

Applications will be reviewed, and decisions made by the SHBC Executive. 

Groups previously successful in being awarded funds from the LCIF include:   

  • Frimley Village Hall Charity (£18,600)   
  • Mytchett, Frimley Green & Deepcut Society (£3,600)  
  • Heatherside Ward Jubilee Benches (£3,600) 
  • Southcote Park play area refurbishment (£15,000)  

The grants are funded through Community Infrastructure Levy payments (payments made for development taking place in the Borough).   

You can read more about the Community Infrastructure Levy on our website.

The bidding for LCIF funds for projects is designed for non-Parished areas in the Borough only. Parish Councils can be approached directly for support in relation to project funds, since they receive a proportion of Community Infrastructure Levy monies from building developments in their Parishes.
