Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a system to charge developers to help pay for extra infrastructure across the district. The money can be spent on infrastructure which benefits our communities, including new schools, roads, transport services, sports facilities, playgrounds and green spaces.

More information: Planning Portal: Community Infrastructure Levy

Submission for public examination

The CIL Draft Charging Schedule has been submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government together with the Kirklees Local Plan, so that it can be examined by an independent inspector.

Once appointed, the Planning Inspector will work together with an independent Programme Officer to conduct the public examination. The Programme Officer manages all correspondence between the inspector, Kirklees Council, and other people who will take part in the examination process.

Further details about hearings and how you can be involved will be published here, once the Planning Inspector and the Programme Officer have agreed those arrangements with the council.
