Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) was introduced in April 2010. It allows local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds from developers who are undertaking new building projects in their area. The money can be used to pay for a wide range of infrastructure that is needed as a result of development.  This can include things like transport schemes, flood defences and green spaces.

The Council has yet to adopt a CIL Charging Schedule, in October 2013 Councillors decided not to progress further work on CIL for at least 12 months due to viability concerns. Instead the Council will progress CIL alongside its Local Plan Review which will commence with an Issues and Options consultation in Summer 2015.
