The Community Infrastructure Levy allows local authorities to raise monies from development for the provision of infrastructure in and around their areas. A CIL charge is non-negotiable; however, there are exemptions for some types of development such as affordable housing, self-build, self-build extension or annex.
The CIL Regulation requires Buckinghamshire Council to pass a proportion of CIL receipts collected from developments in their areas directly to Parish or Town Councils to be spent on infrastructure or anything else that is concerned which address the demands that development places on an area.
Buckinghamshire Unitary Council will pass accumulated funds to the parish council twice a year. The Parish Council will report on receipts and expenditure each year.
As Chalfont St Giles Parish Council has a Neighbourhood Plan, 25% of the community infrastructure levy comes to the Parish.
