Closed 10 Mar 2015

Opened 9 Feb 2015

Feedback updated 13 Jul 2015

We asked

We asked for you views on the draft charging schedule for the proposed Leicester Community Infrastructure Levy.

You said

We had 20 responses. Of these 20 representations, 7 were objections, 2 were in support, 6 making general comments & 5 making no observations. The main issues raised were: - • The charging zones are not correct or the proposed Community Infrastructure Levy rates are not correct • The list of infrastructure to be funded does not adequately reflect the city’s or other organisations need • Some groups should not have to pay the Community Infrastructure Levy

We did

All representations which we received have been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate who will now examine the draft charging schedule checking its compliance with national legalisation. In August an ‘Examination in Public’ will take place which will allow those who made representations to speak directly to the planning inspectorate. Assuming that the planning inspectorate determines that the draft charging schedule is acceptable, we will be introducing a community infrastructure levy by the end of 2015.

Leicester City Council is proposing to introduce a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

CIL is a new charge that local authorities can place on new development in their area. Its purpose is to help fund infrastructure that is needed to support new development.

Before the CIL charge is adopted by the Council it must be subject to two rounds of consultation. This is the second stage of the consultation process – the Draft Charging Schedule. The first consultation, the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule took place from 28th May to 10th July 2014. All the documents for that stage including the preliminary draft charging schedule  are available on -

The Council has prepared a Draft Charging Schedule (DCS) along with the supporting evidence base documents for consultation. The DCS sets out the proposed charging rates for Leicester.

The Council invites comments on the Draft Charging Schedule and supporting documents.
