Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a statutory charge which local authorities in England and Wales can place on developers to help fund infrastructure needed to support new development in their areas.

It is based on formula relating to the type and size of development and is collected when planning permissions for new developments are implemented.

Havering Community Infrastructure Levy Examination - Update November 2018

The Council has submitted its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for an independent Examination.

The documents that the Council has submitted are attached.

The independent Examination will be undertaken by an Examiner.

The Examiner will consider the CIL documents and their preparation and the comments that have been made by third parties (individuals and organisations).

The Examiner may arrange a hearing for the purposes of discussing with third parties what they have said about the CIL. If the Examiner decides to hold a hearing this page will be updated with the details and third parties will be advised.

After he has considered the CIL, the Examiner will then tell the Council if the CIL can be adopted as it was submitted or with modifications that he will recommend.

The Council is planning to adopt the Havering Community Infrastructure Levy in July 2019 and it will become effective after that.

Following its submission for independent review in early 2019 and the subsequent public consultation on modifications recommended by the Examiner, the Council has now received the report from the Examiner.

The Examiner has approved the Havering Community Infrastructure Levy subject to his recommended modifications.

In line with the regulations, the Council will place copies of the Examiner’s report at all Havering libraries and in the Public Advice and Service Centre (PASC) in The Liberty in Romford. Earlier versions of the Havering Community Infrastructure Levy documents were lodged at these locations as part of the public consultation.

The Council is also publishing the Examiner’s report on the Council website. 

The Examiner’s report includes a non-technical summary (page 1) and his overall conclusions for his reasons and recommendations are set out in paragraphs 40 and 42 (page 9).

CIL Funding

It can be used to fund a wide range of supporting infrastructure including:

  • roads and transport schemes
  • flood defences
  • schools and education facilities
  • sporting and recreational facilities; and
  • open space

The Community Infrastructure Levy effectively replaces the pooling of contributions from many developments operated through 'Section 106' agreements, which includes the Council's current Planning Obligations standard charge planning contributions system.

CIL and Financial contributions

It will give developers and their agents a clearer understanding of the financial contributions they are expected to make towards the delivery of community infrastructure needs and it will give the Council a simple process for the collection of these contributions.

n addition to the work which is already underway to establish the Council’s own CIL, the Council collects the London Mayoral CIL on his behalf. Further details on this are available here.
