Community Infrastructure Levy

WODC are also consulting on the draft charging schedule for the Community Infrastructure Levy. The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a way in which local planning authorities can secure funding from new development towards local infrastructure such as roads, schools and health care. The Council intends to introduce CIL alongside the new Local Plan to help ensure that key infrastructure is delivered.

Visit the WODC website for further details and to view the CIL draft charging schedule.

Both consultations will run for a period of 6 weeks.

All comments must be received by 5pm on Friday 8 May.
