Community Infrastructure Levy

The examiner's report for the CIL examination has now been received and can be viewed here.  A report was considered on this matter by the Full Council on 30th July 2015, when it was resolved that CIL would be introduced from 1st September 2015. 

LPAs must apply indexing to their Charging Schedule to cover construction industry inflation.  This is applied at the beginning of the calendar year, so for 2019 the rates have been indexed using the formula contained in CIL regulation 40.  The indexed rates for 2019 are as follows:
