Community Infrastructure Levy
What is the Community Infrastructure Levy?
In April 2015, the Government scaled back arrangements for Section 106 contributions– the system that helps ensure that developers make a financial or other contribution to help support the developments that they carry out. In its place, the Government introduced the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). This is a tariff based system that requires financial contributions to be made to help support certain new residential and retail developments.
On 22 September 2016 the SDNPA formally agreed to take forward the SDNPA CIL Charging Schedule. The SDNPA is now working towards determining a date from which CIL charges will come into force, in line with statutory requirements. Once in force, CIL will be charged across the entire National Park on all liable applications. CIL money will be used to help deliver key National Park priorities, such as green infrastructure, sustainable transport and education.
Please note that only certain types of new development will be liable for CIL charges; these include new residential development and certain retail developments. For further details on the types of application that are liable for CIL, and the amount payable, please refer to the SDNPA CIL Charging Schedule.
