Community Infrastructure Levyphilevers
Newark and Sherwood District Council is close to becoming the first Authority in England to introduce charges on development to help pay for infrastructure and community facilities. The scheme has emerged as part of the Community Infrastructure Levy legislation, and up until now no Authority has implemented one. The charges collected by the council will be used to fund new infrastructure directly or may be redistributed to the appropriate delivery organisations. Local Authorities who haven’t implemented the CIL Regulations are still able to secure income from developments towards infrastructure, but must demonstrate the need and reasonableness of such requests.
