To help support new development planned in the Waveney Local Development Framework, the Council is proposing to introduce a Community Infrastructure Levy. The levy will be payable by developers undertaking new building projects in an area.
Money raised will be used to fund new infrastructure such as transport schemes, schools, open spaces, flood defences, health and social care facilities and leisure centres.
Levy rates will be set out in a Charging Schedule. The Charging Schedule has had two rounds of public consultation, and has been examined by an independent person (see above). The independent examiner has concluded that the Charging Schedule provides an appropriate basis for the collection of the levy in the District and has recommended approval of the Charging Schedule without any further changes. The Charging Schedule will be considered by Full Council for adoption in May 2013. It is likely that the Charging Schedule will come into effect on the 1st August 2013.
Once CIL is in place, Section 106 Planning Obligations will only remain for affordable housing and only in exceptional circumstances where onsite and offsite infrastructure provision is needed to make a development acceptable in planning terms.
