Notices on Motion Submitted Pursuant to Council Procedure Rule 11

Proposed by Councillor Clark and seconded by Councillor Potter

 

As S106 falls away there is a perception of the need to ensure that the Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy remains fit for purpose.

 

The Council’s development plan will be the subject of a formal review after the adoption of the Sites Document later this year and this will also be an opportunity to review the CIL charging regime and the scope of The Regulation 123 list that sets out the full list of infrastructure that is considered to be necessary to support new development in the district.

 

The Planning Committee is requested to consider making appropriate amendments to the Regulation 123 list of infrastructure requirements arising from the consultation process.

 

This consideration and consultation to include environmental and health issues.
