2. Why is this money used for open space, sport and play

We asked for contributions towards education, highways etc but this spend process is focused on the open space, sport and play contributions.

As detailed on the previous page, the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) was introduced across the district on the 1st September 2016 meaning that developer contributions (outside of Cranbrook) are collected by East Devon District Council to be used for off-site facilities like community buildings, roads and education, with a proportion of the monies collected specifically set aside for communities to decide how it should be spent.

We will continue to secure on-site provision of open space, sport and play through S.106 Agreements where justified.
