Spending the Community Infrastructure Levy and reports

We use the money collected through the CIL to help fund infrastructure that’s needed across the district. National guidelines define how the levy can be spent and on what.

Infrastructure Funding Statement

Strategic spending process

We are allowed to keep an initial 5% of the total CIL to cover day-to-day administration costs. We also pass 15% of CIL receipts from developments in parishes to the relevant parish councils. This rises to 25% in areas with an adopted Neighbourhood Plan. Our Guidance for Parish and Village Councils explains how the funds must be spent. The remaining CIL is allocated towards strategic infrastructure work across the district.

We are currently updating the CIL bidding process. Following from July 2018, a new CIL Bid form will be available.

Local spending process for parish and village councils

The Guidance for Parish and Village Councils sets out how their allocation of CIL must be spent and reported on. Reports should be made by no later than the end of May each year using the Parish Council Spending Form. An example of a completed Spending Form is provided.
