An independent group has been established by DCLG to conduct a review of the community infrastructure levy (CIL) and has issued a questionnaire to asses the extent to which CIL does or can provide an effective mechanism for funding infrastructure. The closing date for responses is 15 January 2016.
The group has an aim of assessing the extent to which CIL does or can provide an effective mechanism for funding infrastructure, and will recommend changes that would improve its operation in support of the Government's wider housing and growth objectives.
The review is very keen to hear from a wide range of people. Local authorities and communities groups are important, as are developers, surveyors, lawyers and consultants involved in the CIL process.Drawing on any appropriate expertise and evidence that they may wish to consult at their discretion, the Group's remit is that it should consider the overarching question of whether CIL is meeting its objectives of providing a faster, fairer, more certain and transparent means of funding infrastructure through developer contributions. In doing so, the Group is tasked with considering the following more specific issues:
