Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which allows the Council to raise funds from new developments for use on infrastructure to support the growth of the District. It came into force on 6th April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. The money collected from the levy will be used to support development by funding infrastructure that the Council, local community and neighbourhoods need.

The levy will apply to most new buildings and development over 100 square metres in size. Charges will be based on the size, type and location of the new development and are set out in the Charging Schedule.

Three Rivers District Council’s CIL Charging Schedule was adopted by a decision of Full Council on 24th February 2015. It came into force on 1st April 2015.

In line with The Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) the Charging Authority (TRDC) has a duty to pass a proportion of CIL receipts to local councils as per Regulation 59A.

In line with Regulation 121B, the Parish Council is required to publish a yearly CIL report on its website detailing the funds received from the Charging Authority and expenditure of such funds. The report can be downloaded from the link below.
