Community infrastructure levy (CIL)
What is CIL?
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is money paid by developers to the local planning authority (North Somerset Council) to support local infrastructure that helps communities manage the changes brought about by the development. The Parish Council gets a proportion of this money.
The CIL Regulations state that a Parish Council must use CIL receipts to support the development of the local council’s area, or any part of that area, by funding:
- the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure; or
- anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.
It replaces Section 106 planning obligations for many forms of infrastructure, although Section 106 agreements can still be used for site-specific mitigation measures and for affordable housing provision.
The proportion of the CIL Parish Councils receive depends on whether they have a Neighbourhood Plan. If we had a neighbourhood plan we would receive 25% of the receipts, but as we do not have a Neighbourhood Plan then we receive 15% of the receipts.
Total received by Banwell Parish Council for the financial year 2019/2020: £400.80.
