Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL): Ashford Borough Council

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a new mechanism introduced under the Planning Act 2008 which aims to provide a more consistent approach to determining financial contributions from new development towards local infrastructure provision. The council is progressing the CIL proposals alongside the New Local Plan to 2030.

The proceeds of the levy will provide new local and sub-regional infrastructure to support the development of an area in line with local authorities’ development plans. This identified local and sub regional infrastructure sought could include new schools, hospitals, roads and transport schemes, as well as libraries parks and leisure centres.

The Community Infrastructure Levy Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule was out for public consultation until Wednesday 10 August 2016. The consultation is now closed.

Comments received on the consultation are currently being recorded and assessed.
