What is Community Infrastructure Levy?
The Community Infrastructure Levy is a new planning charge. It allows local authorities in England and Wales to charge developers who are building in their area. The money can be used to pay for a wide range of infrastructure that is needed to support growth. This can include things like new roads, parks and play areas and community facilities. For full details, read the information about Community Infrastructure Levy on the Gov.uk website.
Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule - Consultation
Consultation on the CIL Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule will run for a 6-week period from 4th April 2013 to 4pm on 16th May 2013. This is a key stage towards the adoption of CIL. The Council wants to find out views on the Levy and its proposed charges to decide whether the rates are set at a reasonable level. Please do not make representations before the start date or after the end date as they cannot be considered.
