What is this about?

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tariff that councils can choose to charge on new developments to raise funds to provide infrastructure. The money raised could be used towards improvements to:

  • transport
  • schools
  • parks
  • playgrounds
  • other community facilities.

The CIL will largely replace the existing system of ‘Section 106’ developer contributions. However, such agreements will still be used for site-specific infrastructure and to provide affordable housing.

We have to prepare a Community Infrastructure Charging Schedule, which will outline what we are proposing to charge. The charging schedule has to go through two stages of consultation, before being considered at an independent examination.

A provisional timetable for the production of the charging schedule is set out in the Local Development Scheme (updated October 2017).

Consultation on the Draft Charging Schedule

The Council published its Community Infrastructure Levy Draft Charging Schedule for representations to be made on Friday 15 December 2017. The Draft Charging Schedule provides the background to the proposed tariff and was the second opportunity to comment on the proposed charges.

The consultation on the CIL Draft Charging Schedule ran for 6 weeks from Friday 15 December to Friday 26 January and the responses are now being processed.
