Stroud District Council - CIL examination report published

Stroud District Council published its Community Infrastructure Levy examination report on 17 October 2016.

The Examiner's report on the Stroud CIL draft charging schedule was issued on 17 October 2016. The Examiner found that provided a modification was made the charging schedule would provide an appropriate basis for the collection of the levy in the District. The modification was to include a footnote that would clarify the definition of chargable retail development.

The preliminary draft had a higher rate for supermartket and retail warehouse developments at £150 per m2. The preliminary draft also proposed an "all other development" types rate of £10 per m2.
