CIL Reporting and Infrastructure Spending

Annual reports on CIL receipts

As CIL Charging Authority, we have 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. We have created a guidance document about CIL for town and parish councils: 

Annual Infrastructure Funding Statements will be published on this page per financial year. These statements will be published on this page and:

  • list infrastructure projects or types of infrastructure which the charging authority intends will be, or may be, wholly or partly funded by CIL
  • contain a CIL report showing how much CIL money has been collected, how much has been spent and what it has been spent on
  • contain a S106 report showing how much S106 money has been collected, how much has been spent and what it has been spent on

Infrastructure spending

We will use CIL monies collected to pay for infrastructure to support local growth.

The money collected by CIL is apportioned into three areas:

  • Strategic spending
  • 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.
