Review announced of the Community Infrastructure Levy
The CIL was established in 2010 with the aim of supporting the delivery of local infrastructure, and the government signalled its intention to streamline the planning system and ensure local communities are able to raise funds for continued development.
Since 2010, CIL has used tariff-style developer contributions on large projects within a local planning authority’s area. As an alternative to the traditional ‘Section 106’ planning obligations which are negotiated on an application-by-application basis, the proceeds can be used by councils on local infrastructure projects.
- To assess CIL’s performance in providing a faster, fairer, more certain and transparent means of funding infrastructure through developer contributions.
- To examine the relationship between CIL and Section 106 agreements.
- To consider the impact of CIL’s neighbourhood element of helping increase community support for development.
- To consider the operation of reliefs and exemptions.
Communities Secretary Greg Clark said:
“Our planning reforms have ended the top-down bureaucracy of the past that pitted neighbours against developers – which means more than a million homes have been granted planning permission since 2010.
Planning Minister Brandon Lewis said:
“Where communities benefit from development they are also more likely to support it, and the Community Infrastructure Levy has played a vital role in contributing to local infrastructure and creating that local support.
