Community Infrastructure Levy

A Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which can be levied by local authorities on new development in their area to help fund infrastructure improvements. 

The Council consulted on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule and supporting evidence for six weeks from Friday 5 November 2021 to 5pm Friday 17 December 2021. 30 responses were received from a range of organisations and individuals. 

The Council is currently considering the comments received and considering next steps, particularly in light of the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill which includes a proposal for an ‘Infrastructure Levy’; a levy in a different form, which will replace CIL.
