The Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tool to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of the area.

The levy is charged on new development that creates either 100sqm of new gross internal area floorspace or (a) new dwelling(s) of any size.

Development of this nature will usually require planning permission from the local planning authority, the Planning Inspectorate or the Secretary of State on appeal, however the levy also applies to developments granted consent through local planning orders or Neighbourhood Development Orders. The levy may also be payable on permitted development.

The Parish Council receives any CIL from Horsham District Council on a backdated 6 month period. The monies are allowed to accrue and to be spent on community projects within the Village that would not normally be covered by the precept.

Receipts of CIL by West Chiltington Parish Council are listed in the accounts as CIL receipts and are an earmarked reserve until they are spent. If they are not spent within 5 years of receipt they may be refundable to HDC.
