Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

Community Consultation September 2021

What is CIL?

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a new way of collecting financial contributions from housing developments towards the provision of infrastructure required to support growth in North Somerset. It has been in place since January 2018 (any approved development prior to this would make payments called S106 contributions e.g. most of Chestnut Park and Eaton Park).

North Somerset Council CIL charges are based on a tariff of rates that have been set through public consultation and examination by the Planning Inspectorate.

Town and Parish Councils in North Somerset will receive a proportion of the CIL funds collected from developments in their Town or Parish.
In Yatton and Claverham because there are neighbourhood plans in place, 25% of CIL receipts from developments in the Parish are received by the Parish Council.

The CIL Regulations state that a Town/Parish Council must use CIL receipts passed to it in accordance with Regulation 59A or 59B to support the development of the local council’s area, or any part of that area, by funding:

(a) the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure; or

(b) anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.

Yatton Parish Council are consulting the community on any ideas they may have for projects. The ideas must be

a) For the benefit of the community.

b) No major infrastructure projects.

c) Projects up to a value of £50,000.

Please submit your ideas by 5th October 2021 to clerk@yatton-pc.gov.uk or in writing to the following address. The Parish Council will give an update on selected projects in due course.
