Spending the Levy
The CIL collected by the SDNPA can be used to fund a wide range of infrastructure, including transport, flood defences, schools, play areas, parks, cultural and sports facilities.
When spending CIL, it is the intention of Government that we focus on the provision of new infrastructure.
CIL will help to bridge the funding gap in delivering infrastructure but it will never resolve it. Therefore there is a need to prioritise the infrastructure projects put forward to us for consideration.
In areas where development has taken place, Parish / Town Councils will also receive CIL and have the ability to use this money on projects that are a priority for them.
The Regulations allow them to spend the money on a wider range of projects than the National Park Authority can.
