Submission of CIL Draft Charging Schedule (31 March 2017)


The Community Infrastructure Levy Draft Charging Schedule and associated documentation was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate on 31 March 2017 for examination.  The Secretary of State has appointed Mr Paul Griffiths BSc (Hons) BArch IHBC to conduct the examination and to report to the Council in due course. The CIL Examination Page will be regularly updated with the most recent information on the Examination Hearings and Documents. Contact details for the Programme Officer can also be found on this page.


The aim of CIL is to provide funding for infrastructure by placing a charge on new development. A charge can only be made where the development will remain viable. The last period of public consultation between 3 January and 14 February 2017 looked at the changes to the CIL Draft Charging Schedule which were made in response to comments previously raised by the public and other organisations. The 11 representations received have been reviewed by the Council and have been sent to the Planning Inspectorate together with the CIL Draft Charging Schedule and associated documentation.


An Independent Planning Inspector will examine the CIL Draft Charging Schedule and all comments received. The examination is a continuous process running from submission through to receipt of the Inspector’s Report. Part of the process will involve hearing sessions where those invited to attend, will have the opportunity to respond to matters raised by the Inspector. Once information on the hearing sessions is confirmed, all details relating to the examination process will be advertised and made available online.
