How we prepared the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charging schedules - West Dorset, Weymouth & Portland
The CIL charging schedules for West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland were adopted in October 2015.
In setting the CIL charging rates, we have taken into account evidence on the impact of development viability and the costs of providing infrastructure to support new development. Consultants BNP Paribas were instructed to test the ability of a range of development types to yield contributions to infrastructure requirements through the Community Infrastructure Levy. Levels of CIL have also been tested in combination with the councils' other planning requirements, including contributions towards the provision of affordable housing. Consultation with local developers has also helped inform the development of the levy.
The various stages in the production of the CIL charging schedules and the consultations which took place through the process are listed below along with the documents that have been prepared and consultation responses received at each stage.
Please be aware that the Regulation 123 Lists were revised in November 2016. Please look at How will CIL be spent page for further information.
