New CIL rules introduced

September 17, 2019 at 9:43 AM

New Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) rules have come into force meaning that communities will be able to see what developer contributions are spent on.

The CIL is a planning charge which is used for community infrastructure projects to support new homes, roads, schools, GP surgeries and parkland.

“Up until now councils did not have to give full information about CIL funds but now they will be legally obliged to publish details so that residents can see how money will be spent in their community,” explained Kathryn Williams, chartered surveyor at  Davis Meade Property Consultants, Oswestry.

Housing minister Esther McVey said the new rules, which came into force on 1 September, “will allow residents to know how developers are contributing to the local community when they build new homes”.

Councils will be required to publish an annual report on CIL agreements with developers from December 2020.

The revised rules are intended to help developers speed up building so the Government can meet its ambition to deliver 300,000 extra homes a year by the mid-2020s.

The rules are designed to support councils and give greater confidence to communities about the benefits that new housing can bring to their area.
