Consultation for Community Infrastructure Levy underway - 17/08/16
A public consultation is underway for the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Draft Charging Schedule - a document that sets out the charges that will apply to certain types of development.

Hull City Council first consulted on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule in 2013. When this latest consultation has finished the Council will submit a charging schedule to the Government later in the year so that the charges can be adopted and applied in early 2017.

The national Community Infrastructure Levy Regulation allows the Council to make a charge on developments that varies depending on size, type, location and viability. The charges will apply to retail, commercial development and housing. The rate is set locally and the Draft Charging Schedule suggests charges that range from £5 to £60 per square metre for retail development.

Other types of development, including small residential extensions will not be charged. The charges only apply to new developments and do not apply to existing homes.

CIL will supplement the other funding streams required to deliver the infrastructure necessary for developments. Funding could go to projects such as public greenspaces, children's play spaces, playing pitches for sports, and public realm works.

Councillor Mancey, Portfolio Holder for Energy City, said: ""The Community Infrastructure Levy will secure much needed funding for infrastructure across Hull.

""The Council is committed to ensuring Hull remains a business friendly city that welcomes sustainable development and the rates proposed reflect this. Businesses and housing providers interested in developing in Hull should respond to this consultation.""

The public can have their say on the proposals in a six-week consultation that runs until Wednesday 21 September.

The draft charging schedule and evidence that supports the document are available to view at: Paper copies of the draft charging schedule can be inspected at the Wilson Centre on Alfred Gelder Street, Council libraries and customer service centres along with the Guildhall reception and the History Centre.
