Consultation on the Melton Borough Council Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule for CIL

Closed 23 Aug 2017

Opened 13 Jul 2017


This consultation is now closed.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010.

Melton Borough Council, through work completed in aid of the emerging Melton Local Plan has concluded that there is a funding gap between the needed infrastructure to delivery the Melton Local Plan in full, and available likely funding schemes. It is concluded therefore that CIL is a mechanism that can be used to mitigate this funding gap and ensure infrastructure delivery matches the growth aspiration contained in the emerging Local Plan.

This consultation is on the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule and its associated evidence. It also allows the community to comment on the ‘Reg 123 list’, which indicates the schemes which the Council will use CIL receipts to deliver.

To fully engage and understand this consultation, it is important to first view the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule and supporting documentation here.
