The Infrastructure Investment Fund is an internal fund, meaning that only Greater Norwich partner authorities are eligible to apply. Applications will be considered if a Greater Norwich authority is working in partnership with other organisations, but it should always be submitted by a Local Authority as the lead partner.
Projects should have a project sponsor who is a member of the Infrastructure Delivery Board, and be ‘shovel ready’ to start onsite within the forthcoming financial year.
The IIF welcomes projects that are part funded and only need a final top up of funding to deliver. This includes projects that have received funding from Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL).
Four infrastructure types are eligible to apply to the IIF for funding: transport, education, green infrastructure, and community facilities. These categories were prioritised when CIL was introduced. Projects must align with the strategic priorities of our thematic groups, which are outlined in the Greater Norwich Infrastructure Plan.
