Community Infrastructure Levy Consultation
What is the Community Infrastructure Levy ?
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy that local authorities in England and Wales can charge on new developments in their area. The money generated from CIL can be used to pay for a wide range of infrastructure including:
- community facilities
- health and leisure facilities
- emergency services
Section 106 agreements will continue to be used in conjunction with CIL, to secure affordable housing and site specific mitigation measures.
Subject to certain exceptions, the OPDC CIL rates will be applicable in the following circumstances:
- where the net increase in floorspace (gross internal area) of the development is at least 100 sqm, or it involves creating one or more new dwellings, even where this is below 100 sqm
- where a vacant building is being brought back into use
- where the proposed use is identified in OPDC's CIL charging schedule as a chargeable use
The types of infrastructure that may be funded in whole, or in part, by CIL are set out in a document referred to as the Regulation 123 List.
The types of infrastructure the OPDC CIL may be used to fund are set out in the draft OPDC Regulation 123 List and as Appendix 2 of the OPDC Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule. Comments on the draft Regulation 123 list are welcome as part of our consultation, starting from 3rd October 2016 to 25 November 2016.
