Successful CIL funding application for three footpath projects
We are delighted to report that in February 2018 the Trust was successfully awarded CIL (Communities Infrastructure Levy) funding by Elmbridge Borough Council for three footpath projects. The three footpaths are:
- A new footpath on Leigh Hill Road, which will join Leigh Corner and Leigh Place
- A new all weather footpath along the north side of Downside Common
- Improvements and repairs to the footpath that borders Knowle Hill Park (behind Lodge Close).
In total we have been awarded almost £50,000 and the Trust will be topping this up with another £9000. We will be working with Elmbridge Borough Council and Surrey County Council to implement the works and hope to be able to complete the improvements over the summer of 2018.
