Dear Leigh-on-Sea Town Council,

As a resident of Leigh, I am concerned with the funding and how those funds have been utilised in respect of the Belvedere project.

As the funding came from CIL money please provide the following information urgently:-

1. How much was provided to Leigh Town Council for this project?
2. What was the pricing/quotes for the entirety of the work?
3. Who was approached to undertake the work?
4. How was it decided who to contract the work to?
5. Exactly how these funds have been spent.
6. How much money is left to finish the work?

It is in the interest of the public to have full details as of course CIL funds are for the benefit of the community and must be spent appropriately.

Yours faithfully,


Helen Symmons, Leigh-on-Sea Town Council

Dear Carol,

Thank you for your email. I can confirm as follows:

1. Leigh Town Council originally allocated £15,000 of Community Infrastructure Levy receipts (CIL) to the project following a request from Southend Borough Council
2. The Belvedere is owned by Southend Borough Council. It was their project. Leigh Town Council agreed to provide a contribution towards it. In March 2020, Southend Borough Council advised of the work to be done and asked for a lesser contribution of £8,722.80 + VAT
3. This information is not known by Leigh Town Council as it was a Southend Borough Council project
4. This information is not known by Leigh Town Council as it was a Southend Borough Council project
6. This information is not known by Leigh Town Council as it was a Southend Borough Council project. However, it is understood that the Borough did not proceed with painting the floor and have advised that they will therefore not request the full contribution from Leigh Town Council.

Full details have been published in Leigh Town Council's agendas and minutes along with an annual CIL report.

Kind Regards
