Kirklees Council Community Infrastructure Levy Background Report

About the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a system to charge developers to help pay for extra infrastructure across the district.

The council is working on the evidence needed to implement the CIL at Kirklees. Once this evidence has been considered the formal consultation and examination timetable will be established. It is the council's intention to implement CIL in early 2017.

  • The CIL must go through periods of consultation and an examination by an independent inspector before it can be charged.
  • CIL charges have to be based on evidence about infrastructure funding gaps and the impact that any charges will have upon the viability of future development.
  • Money collected by the CIL will be spent on infrastructure that meets the needs of growth brought by the Local Plan.
  • The CIL is intended to replace off-site and tariff based planning obligations (Section 106 Agreements) which are being restricted after April 2015.
  • Section 106 Agreements still remain for affordable housing and can be used for on-site infrastructure.
  • When the council implements the CIL it will identify which types of infrastructure will be funded by either the CIL or Section 106 Agreements.
  • In an area where CIL is raised, a proportion can be passed to local people to spend on their infrastructure priorities.
