The Department for Transport (DfT) has introduced new regulations to give the mayor of London ten more years to collect and apply his community infrastructure levy to cover the extra cost of the troubled Crossrail project.
A Surrey council has introduced a new community infrastructure levy (CIL) charge this month, while a London borough’s draft CIL schedule has passed examination.
Key planning and development bodies are concerned that the government’s proposed new national infrastructure levy lacks clarity and could lead to lower provision of affordable housing and financial burdens for local authorities.
New regulations were laid before parliament this week which will pave the way for deferral of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) payments where firms are experiencing financial difficulties connected with the Covid-19 outbreak.
Councils will be able to defer community infrastructure levy (CIL) payments from smaller developers for up to six months but there will be no right of appeal for applicants if authorities refuse their request, according to new regulations and guidance.
The government has announced that it will revise community infrastructure levy rules to allow councils more flexibility around the timing of payments from smaller developers. Some lawyers question why larger developers are to be excluded from the changes, while councils have raised concerns about the impact on revenues for much-needed new infrastructure.
An examiner has approved a series of new charges to be introduced as part of the London Legacy Development Corporation’s (LLDC’s) revised Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charging schedule, including a 23 per cent rise in rates for residential schemes.
