CIL guidance changes

CIL Guidance  has  been added to the planning practice guidance web-based resource with some minor amendments

http://planningguidance.planningportal.gov.uk/blog/guidance/community-infrastructure-levy/

This replaced the stand-alone guidance that was published in PDF format when amendments to the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations came into effect in February 2014.

The following minor changes have been made since the February 2014 version:

  • Clarification around the operation of regulation 128A in respect of transitional arrangements for section 73 applications. (Link to 25/007/20140612 – “what is the impact of a section 73 application to amend a planning condition?”)
  • Reference to local authorities giving consideration to setting differential rates in respect of alternative models of social housing provision. (Link to 25/022/20140612 – “how can rates be set by type of use?”)
  • Reference to how instalment policies can assist the viability and delivery of development within the buy to let sector. (Link to 25/055/20140612 – “can payment be made in instalments?”)
  • Clarification around how the restriction on the pooling of planning obligations relates to staged section 106 payments. (Link to 25/099/20140612 – “is there a limit on the pooling of section 106 contributions?”)

CIL guidance changes

The wording of the second para under the “how can rates be set by type of use?” heading seems to be suggesting that CIL rates can be set to further a  policy objective. If that is the intention then it is a move away from a fundamental principle of CIL.
