On 19 July 2013 we received the Inspector's report on our Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule. The report recommends that the schedule should be approved as it is, without changes.

The recommendations will now be taken to the Cabinet on 19 September 2013 and to a meeting of the Full Council on Monday 30 September. They will be asked to approve and adopt the charging schedule.

If it is approved, we will start using the charging schedule after 30 September 2013. The date will be confirmed later.


What is the Community Infrastructure Levy?

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a payment made by a developer to the council per square metre of new floorspace.

The payment goes towards the cost of new infrastructure such as schools, transport links and open spaces to support new housing and jobs.

We asked the public about the CIL charges in a consultation which took place between the 19 December 2012 and 25 January 2013. No changes were made following the public consultation on the document.
