Community Infrastructure Levy
We adopted a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule with associated policies at Full Council on 29 January 2020.
What is CIL?
CIL is a charge that a Local Authority can apply to developers who are constructing additional floorspace. The CIL money that is collected by an authority can be spent on infrastructure which is necessary to support proposed growth in their area. This could involve schemes involving education, transport, community facilities, parks and leisure or other projects which are needed as a result of development taking place. The governance of spending CIL money will be developed in the coming months.
Any applications granted permission on or after 1 April 2020 may be liable to pay a CIL charge.
