What is CIL?

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:

  • new SANG for the Thames Basin Heaths SPA
  • transport
  • schools
  • leisure and community facilities
  • environmental improvements.

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.

Modifications to the Draft Charging Schedule

We made some minor modifications to the Charging Schedule between the Draft Charging Schedule consultation and submitting the Charging Schedule for examination, although the proposed rates were not changed. You can view these below.

Statement of Modifications

A period of four weeks from the date of submission (11 May to 8 June) was given for requests to be made to be heard by the Examiner in relation to the modifications, as set out in the above Statement of Modifications. We have submitted copies of such requests to the Examiner.
