Community Infrastructure Levy - first charges introduced

September 2011

planning & construction news

Newark and Sherwood District Council in Nottinghamshire is set to become the first planning authority in England to introduce a charge on development to help pay for vital community facilities.

Its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) proposals have now been approved by an independent planning inspector with a single minor modification. The Inspector’s report is due to be considered by Newark and Sherwood District Council this month, with formal adoption/implementation anticipated in December 2011.

CIL will be chargeable on the net increase in floor space for development, with the charges varying based upon on the type and location of development. Retail developments will be charged £125 per sq m in the Newark urban area while residential rates will vary from £0 to a maximum of £75 per sq m, depending on location across the planning authority.

The full charging schedule is available on the Council’s website at: http://www.newarksherwooddc.gov.uk/ppimageupload/holding/Image98967.PDF

Shropshire Council is also developing a proposed levy on all residential development, of £40 in towns, and £80 in rural areas (per square metre). Examination on its CIL commenced a month ago; the Inspector is yet to approve the document.

Four other local planning authorities are also progressing to levy charges on development proposals. The authorities are Portsmouth, London Borough of Redbridge, London Borough of Croydon, and the London Borough of Wandsworth.
