The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tariff-based fixed charge which is applied to the net internal floor space of a development (m2). The proposed charge is defined in two ways, by use of the intended development, and by the location (and being over 100 m2 in the first instance if non-residential). The only uses that are subject to the proposed charge are:

  • Private market houses (excluding apartments and self-builds) with a proposed charging Schedule of a low value area (at £45 per m2) and all other area charge of £85 per m2
  • Super markets (£120 per m2); and
  • Retail warehouses (£60 per m2).
    This is available to view in the Charging Schedule, which also provides more detail on the precise operation of the charge as there are some exemptions. No other developments are subject to CIL charging by Ryedale District Council.

In order to introduce the CIL, the Council (as the charging authority), has to demonstrate that there is a shortfall in funding between the expected total cost of infrastructure needed to support development over the plan period and the level of funding likely to be forthcoming from mainstream sources of funding for infrastructure. The Council has published an Infrastructure Delivery Plan to support the delivery as part of the evidence base to Local Plan Strategy.

The production of an economic viability assessment is central to the charge setting process in order to ensure that the CIL does not threaten the delivery of the scale of development identified in the Local Plan. In setting the CIL rates the Council must aim to strike an appropriate balance between the benefits of funding infrastructure through CIL and the potential impact of imposing CIL on investment and development in the District. The Council commissioned consultants Roger Tym and Partners to undertake an economic viability assessment for the District.

CIL - Discretionary relief/exemption and instalment policy (PDF, 4 pages, 165kb) 

Members of the Council approved use of a Charging Schedule (PDF, 6 pages, 1743kb) at a meeting of Extraordinary Full Council on Thursday, 14 January 2016. The Charging Schedule commenced on Tuesday, 1 March 2016.

This covers any relevant application that is determined from the date Council resolved to implement CIL (1 March 2016). It is important that both land owners and developers are aware of the implications of the CIL charge because it is a non-negotiable, fixed charge. Accordingly it will be necessary to either establish that the scheme is exempt, or factor this into the viability assessment as a fixed element of cost.
