The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a mechanism by which funds are raised from housing development toward infrastructure in the Borough. The Council must set out what it proposes to charge development in a CIL Charging Schedule and charges can be based on the type, scale or location of development based on £ per sqm of new floorspace. CIL is a non-negotiable charge and will work in tandem with the current method of raising infrastructure funding from development through Section 106 agreements.
The Runnymede Borough Council Planning Policy Team has prepared a draft CIL Charging Schedule which was approved for consultation at the 22 January Planning Committee and which sets out a number of different charges based on the location of development within the Borough for residential, student and office developments. The draft schedule is open to public consultation from Monday 24 February to Monday 6 April and details can be found on the Council’s web-site at: https://www.runnymede.gov.uk/article/15518/Community-Infrastructure-Levy-CIL-
To support CIL the Planning Policy Team has also prepared a draft Infrastructure Delivery & Prioritisation Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) which was also approved for consultation at the 22 January Planning Committee. The SPD sets out how the Council will prioritise infrastructure funding and the approach to Section 106 once CIL has been implemented. The SPD is also open to public consultation from 24 February to 6 April and further detail can be found on the Council’s web-site at: https://www.runnymede.gov.uk/article/19094/Infrastructure-Delivery-Prioritisation-Supplementary-Planning-Document-SPD-
