Waverley Borough Council has submitted its proposed Community Infrastructure Levy, also known as CIL, to the Planning Inspectorate for independent examination.
CIL is a tariff charged on new development in order to raise funds to provide infrastructure.
The CIL charging schedule, produced following two rounds of public consultation undertaken during the summer and winter of 2017, sets out what the proposed charges will be.
The draft charging schedule was submitted on 11 May 2018, along with supporting documents. The documents can be viewed at www.waverley.gov.uk/CIL and hard copies can be seen at Waverley Borough Council’s Planning Reception, the Farnham Locality Office and at local libraries.
Councillor Chris Storey, Portfolio Holder for Planning, said: “CIL allows councils to raise funds from developers to fund infrastructure needed across the borough, as a result of development. This will be a major contribution in helping us fund the infrastructure gap, which our residents tell us is one of the biggest issues in the borough.
“The financial contributions secured will be used to improve roads, schools, parks, playgrounds and other community facilities.
“The proposal has taken into consideration the responses we have received from the consultation and has also involved a significant amount of research. It now needs to be tried and tested by an independent examiner who will assess whether the proposals have been properly prepared in the light of the representations and evidence.”
The Planning Inspectorate will now appoint an examiner who will review the CIL documents including representations made. Further updates on the examination will be given in due course.
