CIL Consultation update: May 2019

The Council will be inviting representations on a Statement of Modifications to the previous published 2016 Draft Charging Schedule and the updated viability evidence prior to undertaking the CIL examination hearing session.

The consultation will run from 9am Monday 20 May 2019 - 5pm Monday 17 June 2019.

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.

Following submission of the draft charging schedule to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination on 25th April 2017, revisions to the National Planning Policy Framework and associated National Planning Practice Guidance have been published. This has led us to review the draft charging schedule and update the viability evidence in line with the revised guidance. A Statement of Modifications schedule has been produced to accompany the CIL examination submission material.

The Statement of Modifications lists the proposed changes Kirklees Council are seeking to make to the CIL draft charging schedule as a result of new viability evidence and any other changes that have been indentified in reviewing the documentation following submission.

Kirklees Council is now inviting representations on the statement of modifications and the updated viability evidence prior to undertaking the CIL examination hearing session.
