Emerging CIL Rates Of the 9 LPA’s bordering West Berkshire, Swindon and Wiltshire Council furthest advanced Maximum average rates emerging: Residential: £135/m 2 nationally vs. £63/m 2 Swindon and Wilts Retail: £143/m 2 nationally vs. £187/m 2 Swindon and Wilts But beware rates vary greatly: Nearly £600 for residential in some London Boroughs In excess of £200 in other Shire authorities Large residential schemes in Swindon Borough may pay no CIL at all
Themes and issues New and largely untested legislation Apathy Engaging in the Process LPAs and their consultants need data from the industry Early engagement is the most effective Keep abreast of emerging consultations – four week consultation periods Examiners need to see alternative evidence Representations should be supported by viability evidence Application of S.106 following adoption of CIL Affordable Housing Relief Closing loopholes - S.73 and CIL Liability
Making a Difference Outcomes: Southampton reduction in residential rate Bristol amended the charging zone boundaries Greater Norwich Development Partnership residential rate reduced Greater transparency Slow shift towards consensus on key assumptions Clarification slow to work through the system Poole - Differential rates for retail
Conclusions Active engagement important in supporting LPAs to get it right Changes will come but LPAs are moving fast – we must keep up We can make a difference if approached in the right manner Doing nothing is not an option!
