Community Infrastructure Levy Funding
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on most new development within the local authority area. The money is used to pay for new infrastructure required as a result of the new development. This infrastructure can be wide-ranging, including schools, road schemes, health facilities and sports and leisure facilities.
As a Parish Council we are entitled to a proportion of the CIL monies received by the Charging Authority. The amount received depends on whether the Parish Council has an adopted Neighbourhood Plan in place. Presently, Windlesham Parish Council receives 15% of CIL charges (capped at £100 per existing council tax dwelling in the Council’s area) for new developments in Lightwater.
What can Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) be spent on?
CIL monies can be used to support the development of the local area to fund:
- the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure; or
- anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.
“Infrastructure” includes physical, social and green infrastructure e.g. highways; cycleways; education facilities; sports and community halls; parks and play areas.
