Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) was introduced by the Government in 2010. The purpose of CIL is to raise funds from developers to help pay for infrastructure that is required to support new development across the district. The Community Infrastructure Levy will simplify and largely replace the existing system of Section 106 Planning Obligations.

Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule

The Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule sets out the charges that will have to be paid to fund new infrastructure. It represents the Council’s initial proposals for the Levy for the purpose of public consultation.

A Draft Regulation 123 List has been published to sit alongside the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule, for the purpose of public consultation. This is a list of infrastructure intended to be funded in whole or in part by the Community Infrastructure Levy. It is required for clarity and to avoid "double-charging" development for the same infrastructure from other sources such as Section 106 agreements.

Public consultation on the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule was held for 6 weeks August-September 2015.

The Council will take into account comments received in firming up its proposals for the Draft Charging Schedule. The Draft Charging Schedule will be subject to a further stage of consultation and examination before it can be introduced.
