Community Infrastructure Levy
From 6th April 2015 the 2014 CIL Regulations will impose a restriction on the number of Section 106 contributions that can be pooled towards infrastructure.
These restrictions will severely curtail LPAs’ ability to utilise Section 106 as a mechanism for funding strategic, or non-site specific, infrastructure post-April 2015. The 2014 CIL Guidance appears to support the principle of so-called “salami-slicing” by specific infrastructure projects up to a maximum of four contributions.
Council's that are yet to put a Charging Schedule in place will become reliant on collecting planning obligations for a maximum of four site-specific items of infrastructure or projects (e.g. a local school).
