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.

Submission of the CIL for Examination
The council submitted its proposals for introducing a CIL in West Lindsey to the Planning Inspectorate on 15 July 2016 following approval by the council to progress CIL to examination at its meeting on 28 April 2016.
The submission detail is set out in the Notice of Submission document below.
West Lindsey’s CIL Draft Charging Schedule submission comprises a range of documents:
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.
