Why has the Government given local authorities the ability to charge CIL?
- CIL will provide additional funding for us to use on a range of infrastructure projects to support development and benefit the local community
- CIL will give us the flexibility to set our own priorities for which infrastructure projects should be funded and provide predictable future funding
- As CIL rates are published in advance, developers and land owners will have a clearer view of what developments are expected to contribute. This should encourage greater confidence and higher levels of investment.
- CIL will help show people how new development is contributing to their community
