Community infrastructure levy - to approve the charging schedule 2021

02/11/2021 - Community infrastructure levy charging schedule adoption

Cabinet considered the head of planning’s report, which proposed the adoption of the community infrastructure levy charging schedule.  A review of the charging schedule had taken place, including stages for public consultation and independent examination. 


The Cabinet member reported that the independent planning inspector had concluded that the council had provided sufficient evidence that showed the proposed rates would not threaten delivery of the local plan.  The inspector also concluded that the draft charging schedule would provide an appropriate basis for the collection of community infrastructure levy in the Vale and therefore recommended that the draft charging schedule should be approved. 


Cabinet also noted that Scrutiny Committee had supported the proposals. 


Cabinet concurred and looked forward to the charging schedule taking effect and bringing community infrastructure benefits to the Vale. 


RECOMMENDED to Council to:


(a)       adopt the Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule (set out at Appendix 2 to the head of planning’s report to Cabinet on 1 October 2021) and the Community Infrastructure Levy Instalments Policy (set out at Appendix 3 to the report), with an implementation date of 1 November 2021; and


RESOLVED subject to Council approval of (a) above,to:


(b)    authorise the head of planning, in consultation with the Cabinet member for corporate services and transformation, to make any necessary further minor changes to the documents or a change to the implementation date for the new Community Infrastructure Levy rates.
