CIL Collection & Spending

Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

Some of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) we receive will be passed onto the parish or town council where the development is taking place. The amount will be 15% or 25%, depending on whether the community has a Neighbourhood Plan (NP).

The parish or town council will decide how to spend this money. Parish or town councils that have received CIL will publish Annual Financial Reports on their own websites.

Draft Parish Infrastructure Investment Plan (PIIP)

Administrative Costs

Up to 5% of CIL will be spent on the administration of CIL. This could be salaries of the people responsible for processing and managing CIL or software systems used to record, monitor and report on CIL.

The District and Parish councils will publish accounts of CIL income and expenditure as well as details of projects that have been funded.

 

District CIL - Community and Infrastructure Projects

Neighbourhood CIL is paid to parish or town councils twice a year – by the 28th April and the 28th October.

The remaining CIL income is kept by the District Councils. It can be used to spend on infrastructure that is needed by new housing developments or other growth. These infrastructure projects may also be set out in the Infrastructure Delivery Plan for both Councils.

New CIL regulations came into force on 1 September 2019. One change has been the removal of the CIL 123 Lists, which the Joint Babergh and Mid Suffolk CIL Expenditure Framework was originally based on.

When the outcome of this change was considered in March 2019, both Councils published alternative documents to the CIL 123 Lists. These alternative documents are known as the CIL Positions Statement for each District.

The documents are identical and allow the CIL bid determination process to continue. They are also clear on what will be funded by CIL.

Following a second review of the Framework, these documents were adopted in April 2020. This was so that the changes were in place before Bid Round 5 opened in May 2020.  

According to the amended CIL regulations of 2019, both Councils need to publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement about Section 106 (S106) and CIL spending. This statement needs to be published by 31 December 2020.

 MSDC (Mid Suffolk District Council) CIL Position Statement effective from 1 September 2019

 

The following guidance note provides clarity around the changes, especially about the interaction between S106 Obligations and CIL.

Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils Joint CIL and s106 Guidance Document effective from 1 September 2019 

 

CIL will be spent by the Councils on infrastructure projects anywhere within or outside the districts, to support development within the districts.  

The CIL Expenditure Framework was approved by Babergh District Council on 24 April 2018 and by Mid Suffolk District Council on 26 April 2018. 

It was reviewed and approved by Full Council on 18 and 19 March 2019.

The CIL Expenditure Framework and the CIL Expenditure Communications Strategy went through a second review in early 2020. On 20 April 2020, amendments to earlier versions were agreed and adopted by the Councils.

These documents are supported by the CIL Expenditure Calendar 2020.
