Local Development Plan April 2018 - Viability of CIL - request for details of works done to determine viability of CIL
Requested Tue 12 June 2018
Responded Wed 15 August 2018
The Local development scheme dated April 2018 ( https://www.hastings.gov.uk/content/planning/pdfs/Localdevelopmentscheme) states the following concerning Community Infrastructure Levy:
"Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
- A CIL is a Charging Schedule setting out the standard charge(s) that a Council will levy on specified types of development to contribute towards required infrastructure.
Work to explore viability of CIL implementation in the Borough has been undertaken concurrent with developing the adopted Local Plan. This work has so far determined that a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charging schedule would be unviable due to current market conditions. However the potential for CIL will be considered as part of the Local Plan Review process."
Could you please provide details of the work that has been undertaken to explore the viability of CIL implementation.
I request dates and copies of any reports/documents produced that have led to the conclusion that CIL is unviable.
Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding.
Please find attached a 2012 Cabinet report outlining the research in to the potential for implementing CIL together with the assessment work which was undertaken. The assessment report includes 2 appendices which have been supplied here separately.
