Have Your Say on Community Funds

15 Aug

CIL-Twitter

Overview

The Council receives a payment called a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for new building projects, which is then used to fund necessary improvements in infrastructure.

We are seeking views on our proposals to use the Local CIL (Neighbourhood Portion) in Sheffield to

  • promote the development of Neighbourhood Plans across the city
  • ensure that areas of higher deprivation receive a fairer overall share
  • improve how local communities are involved in the decisions on how it is spent

What we are seeking views on

We now need your views on how the Neighbourhood Portion is allocated in non-parished areas or those areas without a Neighbourhood Plan, as well as how local communities are involved in the decisions on how it is spent.

To help you see the process we are consulting on please click on the link here  flowchart

Free Computer Classes

Free computer classes

We know that many of our tenants don’t have the confidence or the know-how to access the internet. That’s why we have an arrangement with Heeley Trust to deliver free computer classes to help our tenants get online.

Being able to do things online like shopping, banking and socialising, can save you money and make things easier and more convenient. Importantly, from November you will only be able to apply for the Welfare Benefit Universal Credit online.

How these classes can help you

If you’re a Council tenant and would like to do more on the internet but you’re not sure how to, or if you’re worried about having to apply online for Universal Credit, then why not sign-up to a class near you?

The classes are held at venues all across the city and are run by friendly, helpful advisors from the Heeley Trust who will help you gain the skills you need at a pace that suits you.

As well as help to apply for Universal Credit, the classes also cover lots of other topics like how to stay safe on the internet, staying in touch with friends and family, accessing health and other services and online banking.
