How is CIL spent?
CIL contributes towards providing the necessary infrastructure to assist the delivery of future growth proposed through plan making. This ensures that more development contributes to the infrastructure needed to mitigate and reduce the impact on the communities in which the new development is taking place.
The CIL gives us greater control and flexibility over where and on what developer contributions are spent, to benefit local communities.
A proportion of CIL income goes directly to the Parish and Town Councils where the new development is built, to spend as they wish on their local infrastructure needs. Each year, Parish and Town Councils will be entitled to up to 15% of the CIL collected from liable developments within their Parish/Town (capped at a maximum of £100 per existing dwelling in the Parish/Town). Where there is an adopted Neighbourhood Plan, Parish and Town Councils will be entitled to up to 25% (uncapped).
