The Community Infrastructure Levy ('CIL') Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS) was the subject of consultation from the 1 November until 17 December 2018, following approval from Council on the 18 October 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.
