CIL is a new financial levy that Local Authorities can choose to charge on new developments. The money will be used to support development by contributing to the funding of infrastructure that the Council, local community and neighbourhoods want.
Dudley Council's CIL Charging Schedule was implemented on 1st October 2015 and applies to certain residential and retail developments, based on the type, size and location of the development proposal.
Any Council that implements a CIL is required to have a Regulation 123 List that sets out specific infrastructure projects which have been identified as eligible for CIL funding. Dudley Council's first Regulation 123 List was approved in September 2015.
The initial Regulation 123 List was subsequently revised in March 2017, October 2018 and September 2019. The purpose of the review is to ensure that the specific projects and types of infrastructure listed remain current and identify up to date funding gaps.
The public consultation allows delivery partners, local communities and stakeholders to comment on the revised List and put forward requests for additional infrastructure projects to be included and others to be amended/removed.
The formal public consultation stage runs for a period of 6 weeks from Wednesday 15th January to Wednesday 26th February 2020. The consultation document is available to view below.
Comments should be sent via email to email@example.com or via post to Planning and Regeneration, Place Directorate, Council House, Priory Road, Dudley, DY1 1HF by Wednesday 26th February 2020.
If your development is liable for CIL you should complete and submit a CIL Additional Information Form and an Assumption of Liability Notice alongside your planning application. Further information can be found on the Planning Portal
A CIL Calculator has been developed to assist developer in calculating potential CIL charges for individual developments.
