Community Infrastructure Levy Guidance

It is an offence for a person to knowingly or recklessly supply information which is false or misleading in a material respect to a charging authority in response to a requirement under the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended).

CIL Explained

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a new way local authorities can raise funds towards infrastructure from developments in their area. In the majority of cases this will replace the existing system of using planning obligations (Section 106 agreements) to secure funds. The money can be used to fund infrastructure that supports development.

The infrastructure that the levy will support in the Borough of Surrey Heath is listed on the adopted Strategic Infrastructure Spending Priorities list.  

The Regulation 123 List was updated on the 28 March 2019, following the update to the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Avoidance Strategy SPD.

This list includes, for example, highway projects and community facilities as well as provision towards Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) land as mitigation to avoid harm to the Thames Basin Heath Special Protection Area (SPA). A 5% administrative charge will be taken out of all contributions.
