Community Infrastructure Levy Consultation – what happened

Consultation on the Draft Charging Schedule took place from 9 February – 27 April 2015.

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 Council commissioned a new study to examine the viability of development in Mid Devon.  The report has been used to inform the content of a new Draft Charging Schedule. It is anticipated that the new charging schedule, once adopted, will supersede the existing schedule, which the Council no longer intends to implement (see History section for more details).

In addition, the Council has updated the Infrastructure Plan and Regulation 123 list which stipulates what infrastructure can be funded by CIL and reflect the infrastructure requirements of the Local Plan Review.

Unimplemented CIL Charging Schedule

On 28th May 2014 the Council's Cabinet decided not to implement the Community Infrastructure Levy.  A draft charging schedule had been subject to Examination during November 2012 with the Council subsequently agreeing to adopt the levy in February 2014.  The decision not to currently implement the levy reflects the fact that the restriction on the pooling of Section 106 contributions has been deferred by the Government until April 2015, and also the reduced level of funding which CIL was likely to raise to pay for the necessary infrastructure on strategic-sized sites.
