Gateshead Council is progressing its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), which is a charge that Local Authorities in England and Wales can choose to make on new developments in their area. The money raised will be used to fund infrastructure or services that the council, local community and neighbourhoods want. CIL is the Government’s preferred way of collecting contributions from developers.
The Council, along with Newcastle City Council, first consulted on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule in 2012. Since then the Councils’ have been focused on preparing and submitting their Core Strategy can Urban Core Plan, which has now been adopted (March 2015). There have also been amendments to the CIL Regulations in 2013 and 2014, and further updates to evidence, which means that the Council is re-consulting with residents and stakeholders on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS).
We would therefore welcome comments and suggestions regarding our approach to CIL, in particular on the assumptions which underpin it, and our proposed Draft Charging Schedule and Charging Zone Maps.
