CIL Consultation Archive Page

The national ability to set a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) came into force in April 2010. It allows local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds for a wide range of infrastructure that is needed as a result of development.   This can include transport, education and potentially many other themes.  The funding is levied from developers undertaking new building projects in their area.

The next round of consultation on the West Lindsey Draft Charging Schedule (DCS) will take place from 19th May to 16th June 2016. Please note response that are received after this date will not be accepted.

The above consultation documents will also be available to view throughout the consultation at the main Council offices at: WLDC, Guildhall, Marshall's Yard, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, DN21 2NA.

Further Information - West Lindsey District Council have been working together with City of Lincoln Council and North Kesteven District Council to implement separate CIL schedules.  Lincolnshire County Council and Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Team have also supported this process.  There are three separate CILs (one for each district), though they are being prepared in parallel and to a common evidence base.

As stated above, the schedules are, in legal terms, separate to each other and to the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan.  The relevant documents have been developed in parallel and in many cases to a common evidence base.  The schedules have been developed within the context of the following documents available on the Central Lincolnshire webpage.
