The preliminary draft charging schedule had proposed to charge all C3 residential development. And the preliminary draft had proposed rates for all A use class retail developments with rates of £250 per m2 for large developments, £100 per m2 for medium developments and a nil rate for small developments.

The preliminary draft would not have charged offices, industrial and warewhouse, educational medical, and community facilities but it had  preposed an "all other uses" charge of £10 per m2.
