How we spend CIL money (2016)

When we receive money raised from the Community Infrastructure Levy we’ll distribute it as follows:

  • 15% to the parish where the development is located – this rises to 25% in areas with an adopted neighbourhood plan

Please note, payments to areas without a Neighbourhood Plan are capped at £100 a year per council tax dwelling – for more information please see how the cap is applied.

  • 5% for CIL admin costs
  • any remaining money goes to infrastructure projects included in our Regulation 123 list

When will parishes receive their CIL funds?

We’ll pass CIL funds to parish and town councils twice a year:

  • CIL receipts collected between 1 April and 30 September will be passed to a parish or town council by 28 October
  • CIL receipts collected between 1 October and 31 March will be passed to a parish or town council by 28 April.

Please refer to the guidance note for Town/Parish councils.

What CIL funds have we received and spent so far?

Annual reports of our CIL income and spending will be provided here. 

As CIL only came into effect on 1 April 2016 it is unlikely that we’ll receive significant funds this financial year. However, we are providing a quarterly update on CIL income here. The figures below are as of 1 February 2017:

  • Total CIL liability notices issued: £6 million 
  • CIL becomes payable with commencement. Up to date we have issued Demand Notices for a total of £1.9 million (note: two demand notices are for large sites and the first instalments are not due until May 2017)
  • Total CIL received: £131,357.52
  • CIL proportion paid to Henley-on-Thames Town Council: £4,940.63
  • The next payment to town/parish councils will be made by 28 April 2017
