REFERENCE FROM COUNCIL

 

 

COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE LEVY

 

At the meeting of the Council held on 18 July 2018, the following motion was moved by Councillor Perry, seconded by Councillor English:

 

The Council has agreed the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), which is due to come into effect later this year.† However, the detail of how it would work in practice and the governance arrangement were not known at the time.

 

The introduction of CIL will fundamentally impact every community in the Borough in setting the mitigation for local communities as a result of planned development.† We therefore request and require that the Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee receive an additional report on the Councilís planning for this change.† This would enable the Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee to conduct an in-depth consideration of the practical application of CIL prior to implementation; and if it considers it necessary, make further recommendations to the Council.

 

It is important that all Members, Parish Councils and residents across the Borough are aware of the steps being taken to make sure CIL is introduced successfully.

 

In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 17.5, the motion, having been moved and seconded, was referred to the Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee.

RECOMMENDED:† That the Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee consider this motion in conjunction with the joint report of the Planning Projects and Delivery Manager and the Principal Planning Officer relating to the Community Infrastructure Levy administration and governance arrangements.
