CIL is a planning charge for developers and landowners which is used to support development of local infrastructure.
The CIL is charged per square metre on new developments, and applies to
- new dwellings of any size
- any development where the internal area of new build floorspace, extension exceeds 100 square metres
The money raised will be used to help fund infrastructure which will meet the needs of the community and improvements include
Where neighbourhood plans are in place 25% of CIL will be allocated for local infrastructure improvements from the CIL raised in that area. Where neighbourhood plans are not in place this falls to 15%.
The CIL charge is non-negotiable and in Runnymede is applied to residential and office developments (Class E(g)(i)) only. No other types of development are affected. It is calculated on a £ per square metre basis and on the net level of development proposed.
Runnymede will still secure some funding through section 106 agreements, but this is likely to be scaled back and more often be restricted to more site-specific requirements. For further guidance please see the Council's Infrastructure Delivery & Prioritisation SPD
Further guidance on CIL can be found on the Planning Portal webpages or on the government website
