CIL Reporting and Infrastructure Spending

Reporting

As CIL Charging Authority, Cotswold District Council has a regulatory requirement to report on CIL receipts collected in any given financial year. This reporting is also required for Parish and Town Councils when they are in receipt of the CIL neighbourhood proportion in a given financial year.

CIL reports will be published on this page per financial year.

Infrastructure spending

Cotswold District Council will use CIL monies collected to pay for infrastructure included on the approved Regulation 123 List. The list sets out infrastructure projects or types of infrastructure that the Council intends will be, or may be, wholly or partly funded by CIL funds.

The money collected by CIL is apportioned into three areas:

  • Strategic spending (Regulation 123 list)
  • Parish/Town Council spending (15% capped at £100/dwelling or 25% uncapped if a neighbourhood development plan is in place)
  • Administrative costs (5%)

Previously, contributions were secured through S106 agreements. Although they will still run concurrently, in many cases CIL will replace the use of such agreements. 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. Offsite infrastructure will now be paid for using CIL.

The Council, as Charging Authority, cannot also collect S106 funding for items stated on the Regulation 123 List as stipulated by the Community Infrastructure Levy 2010 (as amended). This ensures that there is no duplication between the two types of developer contributions, whilst the District can only spend the money collected from CIL on projects that fall within the scope of the Regulation 123 list.
