Proposed changes to CIL could see LPA hiatus in activity

Date: 17/2/2017

Planning magazine reports that a government-commissioned review proposes a system to replace the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) that would see all development face a low-level charge, with no - or very few - exemptions, the removal of the need for an examination process, and a mandatory requirement placed on town halls to adopt the new mechanism. 

Graham Jones, the Planning Officers Society's CIL and infrastructure planning specialist, said that a charge setting system that avoids examination would be "quicker, less expensive, and would short-circuit the difficulties authorities have in getting charges up and running".

 "We are going to have to wait for another six months," said Jones. "During that time, there will be a hiatus, with local authorities not wanting to put their hard pressed resources into something that may not be with us in the future."
