  • a Marginal Viability Fund (for single- or lower-tier local authorities) to provide the final or missing piece of infrastructure funding to get additional sites allocated or existing sites unblocked quickly
  • a Forward Fund (for upper-tier local authorities) for a small number of strategic and high-impact infrastructure projects
