Community infrastructure levy

The Community infrastructure levy (CIL) is a levy that local authorities can choose to charge on new development in their area.

Infrastructure Funding Statement

The Community Infrastructure Levy (Amendment) (England) (No. 2) Regulations 2019) came into force on 1 September 2019. Under these regulations, Infrastructure Funding Statements (IFS) will replace CIL Regulation 123 Lists as the mechanism through which projects are identified for CIL funding.

The IFS will be published annually. The statement provides a summary of financial contributions the council has secured through section 106 agreements from new developments for off-site infrastructure works and affordable housing, in addition to highway works completed as part of new developments through section 278 agreements. Leicester City Council has not adopted CIL, therefore the developer contributions described in this IFS are secured by means of section 106 agreements.

2 November 2016 update

We are currently considering our options on the CIL. CIL cannot be charged until a schedule of rates is adopted, and should we proceed towards adoption, there would be reasonable notice given, (a few months) of our intention to adopt. There is currently not a definitive date on proceeding towards adoption of a CIL.
