What will the Council spend CIL on?
The Council adopted a revised Regulation 123 list on the 30th November 2016, details of which can be found here
The CIL Regulation 123 List (November 2016) sets out the strategic infrastructure types or projects that Test Valley Borough Council may fund, in whole or in part, through CIL. It does not apply to the proportion of CIL passed to town and parish councils.
The Regulation 123 list is intended to support the adopted CIL Charging Schedule and the projects listed within will support the level of development identified in the adopted Local Plan.
The inclusion of a project or type of infrastructure in this list does not signify a commitment from the Council to fund (either in whole or in part) the listed project or type of infrastructure through CIL. The order of the list does not imply any preference or priority.
How is the money allocated?
• 80% towards the infrastructure identified on our Regulation 123 list.
• 15% towards the Neighbourhood Portion of CIL (Parish Councils will be entitled to 25% of CIL receipts from development within their parish if they have an adopted Neighbourhood Development Plan)
• 5% towards the administrative costs of CIL
The Neighbourhood portion will be passed to Parish/Town Councils on a regular basis. Please see regulation 59C from the 2013 amendment to the CIL regulations which outlines how the local council can spend the Neighbourhood Portion.
Application of CIL by local councils
59C. A local council must use CIL receipts passed to it in accordance with regulation 59A or 59B to support the development of the local council’s area, or any part of that area, by funding -
(a) the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure; or
(b) anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.
Details of CIL receipts and expenditure will be included in our Annual Monitoring Report.
What is an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS)?
As a result of recent changes to the Regulations implemented through the Community Infrastructure Levy (Amendment) (England) (No.2) Regulations 2019 (which came into force on 1 September 2019), local authorities are required to report on what has been secured, received and spent through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and s106 developer contributions associated with planning permissions for new development. Councils must also include information for the following year on CIL allocation.
The IFS will be published annually, and provide a summary of all financial and non-financial developer contributions relating to S106 agreements and CIL within the borough.
The IFS has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of The Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) and national planning policy and guidance. The monitoring period for this first IFS is 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 unless specifically stated. This can be found on the right hand side of the page.
Note on the Regulation 123 Infrastructure List:
Under the amended regulations, Infrastructure Funding Statements (IFS) will replace CIL Regulation 123 Lists, as the mechanism through which projects or types of infrastructure are identified for CIL funding. The requirement for the council to maintain a CIL Regulation 123 list has been removed following the enactment of the new CIL Regulations 2019, on 1 September 2019.
The council’s CIL Regulation 123 list is now to be used as an informative document, describing how infrastructure may and will be delivered and funded in Test Valley Borough, through CIL income and section 106 planning obligations.
The way in which the council allocates CIL funds to projects is set out in the CIL Spending Protocol, here.
