The CIL will largely replace the existing system of Section 106 obligations.
It is up to each District Council to produce a 'Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule'. The Charging Schedule lays out the charges that will have to be paid to fund new infrastructure.
The next step is for the District Council to publish a draft Charging Schedule followed by the adoption of a final Charging Schedule after independent examination.
The latest CIL timetable can be found in the Local Development Scheme, which came into effect on the 1st May 2013. For further information, please see:
