CiL presentation for Neighbourhood forums Oct 2013

  1. 1. Community Infrastructure Levy (CiL) Neighbourhood Proportion Communities Engagement & City Development
  2. 2. Since April 2012, we have been collecting funds from developers to help pay for the infrastructure that is needed to support additional houses and businesses in the city. The mechanism we are using is known as the 'Community Infrastructure Levy' or 'CIL' for short. Most developers will now pay into this fund, which over time the council will allocate to infrastructure projects that benefit the city as a whole, such as sea defences, schools and road improvements. 2
  3. 3. In April 2013, the government introduced regulations that allow local communities to benefit directly from this money. 15% of all the money collected from developments that take place in a neighbourhood will now be available for projects in that area. In that way, communities that take more development will get a greater share of the money collected, and that share will be spent on community level projects in their area, rather than large city wide infrastructure. This is referred to as the 'neighbourhood proportion' of the CIL. 3

  6. 6. Infrastructure? Provision Funds will be limited and it will not be possible to bring forward all of the ideas suggested for an area. The council is also obliged to spend the money in line with government regulations. These state that the money can only be spent on: The provision, improvement, repla cement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure; or Maintenance Improvement £? Operation Replacement Anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area. 6

  8. 8. Neighbourhood? Baffins The level for the neighbourhood spend is the ward (subject to exceptions and limitations). The government expects councils to use their existing processes and networks, such as neighbourhood forums, community groups and the networks of ward councillors, in deciding how the neighbourhood funding element will be spent. Milton Fratton Eastney & Crnswtr Projects that cross ward boundaries will be considered. 8
