Have your say on how funding is allocated to community projects

Southwark Council has £6m to spend on community projects, support the ideas you want to see happen

The need for high quality open spaces, and better cycling and walking routes, will become even more important for our community.

Working in partnership with other community organisations, we have identified a number of project ideas that focus on improving streets for cyclists and pedestrians, and creating less crowded spaces by taking pressure of existing routes. But we need your support to make them happen.

Southwark Council has £6m to spend on community projects, and you can have a say on how the money is spent. More information on each of these projects can be found on the Commonplace map. Show your support by clicking 'agree' or 'share' on the projects you think are most needed. You can click on as many as you like, or add your own project ideas. 

The money will come from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). This is a levy that has been raised on the developments built in Southwark since 2015 (such as new housing, hotels or shops). The amount available in each of the borough's 23 wards varies according to how much development there has been in the ward.

The deadline for support, comments or pinning new ideas to the map is 31 May.
