Waverley Borough Community Infrastructure Levy
There is a forthcoming consultation on the Waverley Borough Community Infrastructure Levy.
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy that councils can choose to charge on new developments to raise funds to provide infrastructure. The money raised could be used towards improvements to roads, schools, parks, playgrounds and other community facilities.
Earlier this year, as part of the preparation for the introduction of CIL, the Council consulted on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule, which set out a proposal for the developments that would be liable to pay CIL, and what the proposed charge would be.
The Council has considered the responses made and updated its evidence base accordingly.
They are now consulting on the next version, the CIL Draft Charging Schedule, for a six week period from 15th December 2017 to 11.59pm on 26th January 2018. Full details of how to get involved in this consultation are available on the website at www.waverley.gov.uk/CIL.
You will be able to comment online, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (preferably using the response form) or in writing to: CIL consultation, Planning Policy, Planning Services, Waverley Borough Council, The Burys, Godalming, GU7 1HR.
During the consultation you will also be able to view copies of the Draft Charging Schedule and other supporting documents at the Waverley Borough Council Offices in Godalming and at the locality offices and public libraries within the Borough.
Please note that representations will be publicly available and cannot be treated as confidential, although address, telephone and email details will not be published.
