What is CIL Funding?
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge which raises funds to be spent on local community projects. It was introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a mechanism for local authorities to provide or improve infrastructure that will support the development of a local area. In areas with a Neighbourhood Plan, such as the Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Plan, the neighbourhood is entitled to 25% of CIL revenues raised from planning consents granted for development in the plan area.
The local authority is required by law to consult with the community on how this money is allocated. CIL revenues are to be spent on the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure, or anything else that is concerned with addressing demands that development places on an area.
