Infrastructure spending and funding
The money collected by CIL is divided into three areas:
- strategic spending
- Parish or Town Council spending, 15% capped at £100 per dwelling or 25% uncapped if a neighbourhood development plan is in place
- administrative costs 5%
The Strategic spending CIL collection needs to fund infrastructure that supports development in the district. Our Infrastructure Delivery Plan has identified infrastructure projects that are required to deliver development up to 2031. These have been included in the Local Plan policies SA1, SA2 and SA3.
Previously, contributions were secured through S106 agreements which may be replaced by CIL. We will still seek S106 contributions for major allocated schemes, affordable housing, public open space and where there are site specific measures required to make a development acceptable.
A yearly overview of all funds collected and spent regarding infrastructure in the district will be published in Infrastructure Funding Statements from 2020.
CIL reporting is also required for parish and town councils when they are in receipt of the CIL neighbourhood proportion in a given financial year.
