9.4 Innovation

When you refer to innovation, is this in connection with the share offer / investment mix or to do with the type of project? Where or how do you see the innovation taking place?

The Booster Programme seeks to support market development across a broad range of issues in relation to community businesses and is certainly not confined to the share offer or investment mix.

It may be useful to focus on innovation via the investment proposition - see section 2.2.5 of the Guidance Notes for more information on this. We would also like to hear about other areas of innovation that you could propose.

Has there been any innovative work done with the Booster Programme on projects involving CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) as part of the funding mix?

Not as yet!
