CIL Collection & Spending

Neighbourhood CIL

Some of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) we receive (15% or 25% depending on if your community has a Neighbourhood Plan) will be passed to the parish or town council where the development is taking place. The parish or town council will decide how to spend this part of the levy.  Annual Financial Reports on CIL for each parish or town council receiving CIL are published on the town or parish councils own websites.  

Draft Parish Infrastructure Investment Plan (PIIP)

For enquiries on spending or obtaining Grants for Community Projects please submit the Project Funding Enquiry Form to the Communities Team. 

 

Administrative Costs

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

The District and Parish councils will publish accounts of CIL income and expenditure together with details of the projects that have been funded.

 

District CIL - Community and Infrastructure Projects

Whilst Neighbourhood CIL is paid to parishes twice each year (by the 28th April and the 28th October) the remaining CIL income is retained by the District Councils to spend on infrastructure required by new housing development and growth within the Districts. These infrastructure projects may also be identified in the Infrastructure Delivery Plan for both Councils.

New CIL Regulations came into force on 1 September 2019 and one of the measures that has been changed is the removal of the CIL 123 Lists upon which the Joint Babergh and Mid Suffolk CIL Expenditure Framework was originally currently based.  When both Councils considered the outcomes of the first review to the CIL Expenditure Framework in March 2019, Babergh and Mid Suffolk provided for this forthcoming legislative change to the CIL 123 Lists with delegated authority to publish an alternative document for both Councils.   These alternative  documents are known as the CIL Position Statements for each District. They are identical and were produced and agreed and adopted in accordance with the Councils decision and  allow the CIL bid determination process to continue.  The CIL Position Statements provide clarity about what will be funded by CIL.  The Councils carried out a second review of the CIL Expenditure Framework and adopted these changes in April 2020 so that the amendments are in place before bid round 5 opens in May 2020.

Both Councils are required by the Government through the amended CIL Regulations of 2019 to publish an Infrastructure Funding Statement about S106 and CIL expenditure before 31st December 2020.

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

CIL will be spent by the District councils on infrastructure projects anywhere within or outside the districts to support development within the districts.  The CIL Expenditure Framework has been 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.

Following the second review of the CIL Expenditure Framework and the CIL Expenditure Communications Strategy, amendments to earlier documents were agreed and adopted by both Babergh and Mid Suffolk  on the 20th April 2020. These documents are supported by the attached CIL Expenditure Calendar 2020.
