The Parish Council receives monies via B&NES from the Community Infrastruture Levy charged on developments in the Parish. The Parish Council receives 15% of the levy in three installments during the progress of the works. Additionally, 10% is given by B&NES to a central pot associated with the Chew Valley Neighbourhood Plan and these monies are granted by a committee of Parish Council Chairmen.
Information about the levy can be found here - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/community-infrastructure-levy
The criteria for spending the levy are given below:

What can the Community Infrastructure Levy be spent on (and by whom)?

Application of CIL by Local Councils.

A Local council must use CIL receipts passed to it in accordance with regulation 59B to support the dvelopment of the local councils area or any part of that area by funding:

a) the provision, improvement, replacement, operation of maintenance of infrastructure or

b) anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands developments place on the area.

Local authorities must allocate at least 15% of levy receipts to spend on priorities that should be agreed with the local community in areas where development is taking place. This can increase to a minimum of 25% in certain circumstances.

How to apply.

Applications for both the Parish CIL monies and the CVNP monies should be made to the Parish Council via The Parish Clerk.
The application should include the following information: 
Name of organisation and contact details of those making the application.
Title of the application. (eg New disabled Access)
Details of the proposed works including drawings and specifications where available.
Cost of the proposals and amount required from CIL monies
Timescale of the project.
The Parish Council may request further details before making a decision about the application. Additionally, because of the way the levy is received by the Parish Council which is related to the commencement dates for the developments it may not always be possible to fulfil applicants timescale requirements.
