Community infrastructure levy (CIL)

What is CIL?

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is money paid by developers to the local planning authority (Peterborough City Council) to support local infrastructure that helps communities manage the changes brought about by the development. The Parish Council gets a proportion of this money.

The money can be used to fund a wide variety of infrastructure including:

  • health facilities
  • parks, green spaces and leisure centres
  • hospitals and other health and social care facilities
  • schools and other educational facilities
  • transport schemes.

It replaces Section 106 planning obligations for many forms of infrastructure, although Section 106 agreements can still be used for site-specific mitigation measures and for affordable housing provision. Further information here.

The proportion of the CIL Parish Councils get depends on the whether they have a Neighbourhood Plan. If they have a plan in place, they will get 25% of the receipts, parishes that do not have a Neighbourhood Plan get 15% of the receipts and this is capped at an equivalent of £100 per dwelling per year. Local information on neighborhood plans is available here.
