We are currently consulting on the Viability Assumptions for the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and joint Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan. We have created a questionnaire that sets out these assumptions, and allows you to provide comments. We are also interested in your views on what you think the impact of charging CIL will be on our ability to deliver the objectives of the Plan. For more details and to access the questionnaire please see our Community Infrastructure Levy page.
We are now carefully considering your comments and alternative options. A feedback report will be available shortly. You can view all comments submitted on our online consultation portal.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities to charge a tariff, at a locally set rate, on many types of new development.
Neighbourhood Planning enables communities to prepare plans and development proposals to influence future development in their area. This includes Neighbourhood Plans, Neighbourhood Development Orders and Community Right to Build Orders.
