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
