Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL): What it means for you

01 Jan 2018

Planning and Environment

CIL is set to be an important measure to allow Councils to ensure development can go ahead which benefits local communities. In the current constrained financial climate, the ability to fund physical, social, and community infrastructure is a critical issue for decision makers. Hand in hand with CIL will be the scaling back of the scope for planning obligations. After some earlier mixed messages the Government has now confirmed the retention of the CIL regime, with further refinements announced in the Localism Bill.

Chambers was pleased to host this conference covering:
