The three Central Lincolnshire planning authorities (City of Lincoln Council, West Lindsey District Council, and North Kesteven District Council) have announced plans for the universal roll out of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on all qualifying developments from 22 January 2018. It is important to note that this will relate to all planning applications (that are CIL liable) which have not been determined by this date. The Councils will spend and distribute CIL revenue in order to contribute towards the costs of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass, and Secondary Education and School-based post-16 Education across Central Lincolnshire – these form part of the Councils’ Regulation 123 List. A consequence of the Government’s rather muddied thinking on the matter means that the local planning authorities still have the ability, where relevant, to request other developer contributions – namely Primary Education, Healthcare, Open Space, and Affordable Housing – through the use of Section 106 Agreements or, in some cases, the use of Grampian planning conditions. For advice on the CIL charging rates, charging schedule zones, or any other matters in relation to the roll out of CIL, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Globe team for further information.
