Due to a recent DCLG consultation and further proposed amendments to the CIL regulations it is now proposed to defer commencement of consultation on a Draft Charging Schedule to winter 2013/14.

If you have any queries regarding the implementation programme please contact the Strategic Planning Policy & Specialist Advice Team on 01454 863469.


Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule public consultation in accordance with Regulation 15 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010, and initial consultation on a Preliminary Draft Developer’s Guide Supplementary Planning Document in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
