The Government proposes in this consultation to ensure that consultation requirements for setting and revising a CIL charging schedule are proportionate, by replacing the current statutory formal consultation requirements with a requirement to publish a statement on how an authority has sought an appropriate level of engagement. This would be considered through the examination process, and the Government consideres that this will allow authorities to set schedules more quickly, and to expedite revising them in response to changes in circumstance.
The proposals also aim to streamline the process for local authorities to set and revise CIL charging schedules by aligning the requirements for evidence on infrastructure need and viability with the evidence required for local plan making. The aim of this is to reduce the burden on local authorities and make introducing CIL more attractive.
