Plans for spending
SDC will use CIL monies collected to pay for infrastructure included on the approved Regulation 123 List. The list sets out infrastructure projects or types of infrastructure that the Council intends will be, or may be, wholly or partly funded by CIL funds.
A percentage of the collected CIL funds are allocated to the Parish/Town Council.
Previously, SDC have secured contributions through S106 agreements. Although they will still run concurrently, in many cases CIL will replace the use of S106 agreements.
S106 contributions will still be sought for major allocated schemes, affordable housing, public open space and where there are site specific measures required to make a development acceptable. Offsite infrastructure will now be paid for using CIL.
The Council as Charging Authority cannot also collect S106 funding for items stated on the Regulation 123 List as stipulated by the Community Infrastructure Levy 2010 (as amended). This ensures that there is no duplication between the two types of developer contributions, whilst the District can only spend the money collected from CIL on projects that fall within the scope of the Regulation 123 list.
The money collected by CIL is apportioned into three areas:
- Strategic spending (Regulation 123 list)
- Parish/Town Council spending
- Administrative costs (5%)
The allocation to Parish/Town Councils is set out in the table below:
|Parish/Town Council||Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)||CIL allocation|
|25% uncapped (NDP area)|
|X||15% capped at £100/dwelling|
CIL expenditure will be reported at the end of December every year, with the first report being in December 2018 reporting for the 2017/2018 financial year. The report will be made available to the public via the SDC website. Parish and Town Councils are also required to produce a report for their own website. The SDC report will collate all of the information on strategic and neighbourhood spending.
