Brent Council has clarified the Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy consultation survey. The drop-down menu on each of the areas is labelled 1 to 9. Some people had thought 9 would be the highest priority as it is the highest number. In fact the highest priority is 1 and 9 is the lowest.
This afternoon the Counncil said:
The Council amended the relevant page thus:Based on the data and comments received, we are able to confidently assume that most people used number 1 to rank their highest priority. However, just to be sure we will be emailing all respondents to this consultation to clarify the ranking order and they will be invited to submit a new response which will be counted separately.
In answer to a separate query on the Annual CIL report the Council said:
To clarify, the 'n/a' which appears in some of the tables means 'not applicable' rather than 'not available'. For the avoidance of doubt we have included a clarification point at the end of the document which has been republished online. In addition, the third table of the Report includes the name of the item of infrastructure that CIL was used to fund in 18/19 - Olympic Way Pedestrian Improvements - which is linked to footnote 3.The Olympic Way Pedestrian Improvements expenditure in 2018-19 totalled £4,632,929 in addition to the £815,114 Wembley Neighbourhood CIL payments.
