The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a
charge that local authorities in England and Wales can require of
most types of new development in their area (based on £X per sqm),
in order to pay for the infrastructure needed to support
development. CIL charges will be based on the size, type and
location of the development proposed.
Following an independent Examination into
the Council’s proposals, on 20 November 2012, the Council aims to
adopt its proposed CIL Charging Schedule, which
charges varying amounts for different types of development in
different parts of the District, in Summer 2013.
If you are considering buying land for
development and/or submitting a planning application in the
District (other than for extensions, to dwellings, of less than 100
sqm), please be advised that, once adopted, this charge will apply
to all relevant applications determined following the date of
adoption, even if they were submitted in advance of this time.
Further information on CIL can be found on the
Planning Portal website. More detailed information will be
provided on these web pages over the coming months.
