The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 which came into force on 6 April 2010 through the CIL Regulations 2010. It's a tool we can use to help fund new infrastructure to support the development of the borough. Most new development which creates net additional floor space of 100 square metres or more, or creates a new dwelling, is potentially liable for the levy.
Our Draft Charging Schedule was submitted for examination under Regulation 19 of the amended CIL Regulations 2010 on Monday 24 April 2017.
David Spencer BA DIPTP MRTPI from the Planning Inspectorate has been appointed to carry out an independent examination of our Draft Charging Schedule.
Louise St John Howe has been appointed as the Programme Officer.
She's an independent officer of the examination and works on the inspectors behalf, organising and managing the administrative and procedural matters of the examination process.
Any queries about the examination or any correspondence to the inspector should be sent to: Louise St John Howe

2016 Draft Schedule
We consulted on our Draft Charging Schedule between 5 August and 16 September 2016. This set out the proposed charging rates for development in Maidstone, including the types of development that will have to pay the Levy and where the proposed rates will apply.
We consulted on our May 2016 Draft Regulation 123 List and Instalments Policy at the same time. This led to preparations for the consultation taking account of the comments we received during the 2014 consultation, and the development of our Local Plan and its evidence base. You can see the consultation documents and the comments received on our Planning Consultation Portal.
2014 Preliminary Draft
We ran a consultation on our Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule between 21 March and 7 May 2014. This set out the proposed charging rates for development in Maidstone, based on our Maidstone Borough Local Plan 2014. You can see the consultation documents and the comments received on our Planning Consultation Portal.
