CIL Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Public Consultation

View and provide comments on the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Public Consultation. The Consultation will run from 1 November until 5pm on 17 December 2018.

The Council is consulting on a new Community Infrastructure Levy ('CIL') Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS) and the Consultation will run from 1 November until 5pm on 17 December 2018.

CIL is a levy that local authorities can choose to charge on new development in their area. The detailed implementation of CIL is set out in the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended). The levy allows the Borough Council to raise, and pool contributions from developers to pay for things such as transport, leisure and open spaces, schools and other infrastructure needed to support new development. The 'Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule' is the first stage in the process of adopting CIL. The PDCS sets out the charges for different types of development in the borough. The rates proposed have been informed by viability evidence produced by consultants specialising in this type of work.

What happens next?

The CIL's Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS) document represents the first stage of public consultation on the proposed charges, which would apply borough wide. After the consultation has finished on 17 December, all the representations received will be collated and processed and will help inform a final CIL charging schedule which will also be subjected to a further consultation prior to examination and adoption.

Key Stages for Adopting a CIL Charging Schedule:

  • Stage 1: Publication/Consultation on Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule
  • Stage 2: Publication/Consultation on Draft Charging Schedule
  • Stage 3: Submission for Examination
  • Stage 4: Examination of the Draft Charging Schedule
  • Stage 5: Adoption of the Charging Schedule and Implementation of CIL
