Community Infrastructure Levy

The national ability to set a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) came into force in April 2010. It allows local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds from developers undertaking new building projects in their area. The money can be used to fund a wide range of infrastructure that is needed as a result of development.

At present, CIL is not in force in any of the authorities in Central Lincolnshire, but advanced proposals are in place. Such proposals are being developed by the three individual districts within Central Lincolnshire. There will be three separate CILs (one for each district), though they are being prepared in parallel and to a common evidence base.

Consultation arrangements, and subsequent adoption of a CIL, are a matter for the individual districts. The Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee does not make any decisions on any of the three emerging CILs, though it is kept informed of them as they progress.
