CIL Receipts and Expenditure Reports
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge that local authorities can set on new developments. Its purpose is to raise funds for infrastructure needs in the area to support growth. Fifteen per cent of Community Infrastructure Levy receipts collected on developments within a parish boundary are passed directly to parish councils, rising to 25% if a Neighbourhood Development Plan is in place. The portion assigned to parish councils is referred to as Neighbourhood CIL.
The charging authority in Mole Valley is the District Council (MVDC). It is responsible for collecting and allocating the neighbourhood element to the parish councils in its area. Under the CIL Regulations the neighbourhood portion of CIL is be paid to the appropriate parish council every 6 months, at the end of October and the end of April.
The neighbourhood portion of the levy can be spent on a wider range of things:
• The provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure, or
• Anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area
It can also be spent on projects such as funding affordable housing or the development of a neighbourhood plan where these projects would support development by addressing the demands that development places on the area.
As required by Regulation 62 (A) of the Community Infrastructure Levy (amendment) Regulations 2013, Charlwood Parish Council is required to issue a report for the financial year in which it receives CIL receipts.
A copy of this report is published on the Parish Council website and can be accessed below. It is also sent to the CIL Monitoring Officer at Mole Valley District Council.
