Draft CIL Regulation 123 List Consultation
We are consulting on a Draft Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Regulation 123 List from 01 September until 5pm, 13 October, 2016. When finalised, this will replace the original CIL Regulation 123 List, which was adopted by the Council in February 2015.
What is the Regulation 123 List?
The Regulation 123 List serves as a means of identifying those infrastructure needs which can or may be delivered through the use of CIL funds. Inclusion on the list does not imply priority, or that the Council will spend CIL on every item, or not spend CIL on other unlisted items. Prioritisation of CIL funds will be member-led, through the Councils Capital Programme. The main purpose of the Regulation 123 List (as set out in the CIL Regulations) is to prevent CIL expenditure and Section 106 planning obligations from overlapping, and hence prevent developers from being ‘double charged’ for the same. The Council adopted its current CIL Regulation 123 List alongside its Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule at a meeting of Full Council in February 2015.
Why update the R123 List?
It was always the intention that the list would be subject to periodic review using the benefit of our experience in operating the system as initially adopted. It has come to light that the way in which some of the items and types of infrastructure are worded on the adopted Regulation 123 List could lead to a broader interpretation than was originally intended, thus restricting the Councils ability to negotiate S106 obligations.
In order to address any ambiguity in the wording of the ‘Regulation 123 List’, the Draft CIL Regulation 123 List Consultation Document proposes changes to clarify the original intention of the Regulation 123 List items or types of infrastructure and to avoid any misinterpretation as to their meaning in the future.
Proposed changes to the ‘Regulation 123 List’ and reasons for these changes are set out in the Draft Regulation 123 List Consultation Document. The proposed changes do not have any implications on the level at which CIL has been set in Wokingham as the changes are just to clarify the intention of the original List.
How do I give feedback?
Following this consultation, your comments will be analysed and, if necessary, changes may be made to the document. All comments will be made publicly available. The Draft Regulation 123 List will then be taken to the council’s Executive for formal adoption.
