Detail of outcome
Research report on the value, impact and delivery of the community infrastructure levy
The government commissioned an independent review of the community infrastructure levy in November 2015 to assess the extent to which the community infrastructure levy does or can provide an effective mechanism for funding infrastructure, and to recommend changes that would improve its operation in support of the government’s wider housing and growth objectives.
The independent review group submitted their report to ministers in October 2016.
The review was informed by the responses to the consultation questionnaire and the research undertaken by Three Dragons / University of Reading.
The review is very keen to hear from a wide range of people. Local authorities and communities groups are important, as are developers, surveyors, lawyers and consultants involved in the community infrastructure levy (CIL) process.
The community infrastructure levy introduced in April 2010 seeks to provide a faster, fairer, more certain and transparent means of collecting developer contributions to infrastructure than individually-negotiated ‘Section 106’ planning obligations.
The government confirmed in November 2015 that Liz Peace will lead and chair an independent group conducting a review of the community infrastructure levy.
The group met on 12 November 2015 and will assess the extent to which CIL does or can provide an effective mechanism for funding infrastructure, as well as recommend changes that would improve its operation in support of the government’s wider housing and growth objectives.
