Community Infrastructure Levy: Draft Charging Schedule

This consultation has now closed.

We’re seeking views on the Draft Charging Schedule for the district’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

The levy will raise money from developments within the district, which will help to fund the new infrastructure needed to deliver the objectives of the Local Plan.

The Draft CIL Charging Schedule sets out the proposed charging rates. It is the second stage in the process of developing a local CIL, following consultation on the Preliminary Draft CIL Charging Schedule between October and December last year.

The Draft CIL Charging Schedule is supported by a number of other documents:

  • A Draft Infrastructure List (Regulation 123) which specifies the projects and types of infrastructure which may be funded through the CIL
  • An Infrastructure Delivery Plan which provides evidence for the Draft Charging Schedule
  • A Viability Report and associated appendices

We’re also seeking views on a Draft Instalments and Payment in Kind Policy which are intended to support the implementation of the CIL.

For further information regarding how and why the Council is developing a local CIL, please see these Frequently Asked Questions.
