The Community Infrastructure Levy, known as CIL, will be a new charge on certain building developments to help to pay for infrastructure needed to support new development in Cornwall. The Community Infrastructure Levy will help provide funds for infrastructure required to deliver the development strategy for Cornwall, as set out in Cornwall’s recently adopted Local Plan.

Whilst the Community Infrastructure Levy will make an important contribution towards financing infrastructure, it will by no means provide all the necessary funding, so other sources of funding will be needed, including developer contributions such as S106 agreements.

The Draft Charging Schedule, known as the DCS, is prepared in accordance with the 2008 Planning Act and the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended), and is based on two sets of evidence: the need for infrastructure and development viability in Cornwall.

The Draft Charging Schedule sets out proposed Community Infrastructure Levy rates to charge on residential and non-residential development across Cornwall.

None of the documents included in this consultation contain information about the decision making process for how CIL income will be spent.  This will be informed by the outcome of an ongoing governance review within Cornwall Council.

We would like to know your views on:

  • The Community Infrastructure Levy rates proposed for residential and non-residential development in the Draft Charging Schedule.
  • The current draft documents:
  • Regulation 123 List – this sets out the infrastructure projects, or types of infrastructure, that Cornwall Council may fund, in whole or in part, through the Community Infrastructure Levy.
  • Instalment Policy – this sets out the options for developers to pay their CIL charge in instalments, dependant to the total CIL liability.
  • Discretionary Relief Policy – this sets out the relief that Cornwall Council proposes to provide to eligible development, over and above the mandatory relief provided for through the CIL Regulations.

You will need to read these documents before you complete the Representation Form, as this is what we are consulting on.  The following documents may also be of help:

  • Guide to Community Infrastructure Levy and Draft Charging Schedule leaflet
  • Community Infrastructure Levy Consultation Explained document
  • Infrastructure Funding Gap Analysis
  • Charging Zone maps

All documents are available on our website and from your Library or Information Service (One Stop Shop).
