What is this about?

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy 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.

You can now comment on our CIL Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule, which is the first stage of CIL consultation. This consultation will run for six weeks from Monday 19 June to Monday 31 July 2017
