CIL: Post Examination – Consultation on Revisions to the Regulation 123 List

Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule – Consultation on Revisions to the Regulation 123 List post Examination

This consultation has now ended.

On the 27 January 2017 the South Worcestershire Councils (SWC) received the final report into the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule from examiner Mr Roger Clews of The Planning Inspectorate following the hearing held on 29 November 2016. The report concluded that, subject to modifications, the CIL Charging Schedules for Malvern Hills, Worcester City, and Wychavon provided an appropriate basis for the collection of the levy in each SWC area.

In reaching that conclusion the examiner has made a number of recommendations, based on matters discussed at the hearing which the examiner believes are necessary to make the Charging Schedule ‘sound’ prior to separate adoption of the CIL by the SWC later in the year. The modifications are set out in Appendix A of the examiner’s CIL Report which is available to view online at the CIL Examination page.

Consultation on Revisions to the Regulation 123 List

The SWC are taking the opportunity to revise the Regulation 123 List, to both reflect specific changes resulting from the examiners modifications and to seek changes based on material considered during the overall examination process. These changes are set out in the documentation below.

There is now a six week opportunity to make any comments on the revised Regulation 123 List commencing on 13 February 2017 and concluding at 5:00pm on 27 March 2017.

Following the conclusion of this consultation, a final CIL charging schedule will be produced, incorporating the examiner’s modifications, the revised Regulation 123 List and all of the previous modifications to the Charging Schedule into a single document that will be considered by each of the SWC at the respective Council meetings when adopting CIL. Further notification of the adoption of CIL in South Worcestershire will follow once these meetings have occurred.

How to Comment

Please note that this is not an opportunity to comment further on the examiners modifications to the Charging Schedule but specifically on revisions now proposed to the Regulation 123 List.
