In light of the outcome of the recent Levelling Up Fund bid, to revisit the previous City Council resolution to support the proposed works to the city centre precincts using CIL funds (Extraordinary meeting of the City Council held on 5 July 2022, minute 24 refers)
That the City Council supports the allocation of a sum not exceeding £100,000 from unallocated CIL funds towards the pavement element of the Public Realm project which forms part of the Levelling Up Bid being co-ordinated by Chichester District Council. The City Council considers this a reasonable and proportionate contribution in the spirit of partnership working and in support of long standing concerns the City Council have the condition of pavements in the City centre.
