A Nottinghamshire council has adopted a multi-tiered Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charging schedule for housing and retail developments.
Charging authorities raised close to half a billion pounds from the Community Infrastructure Levy in the 2017/18 financial year, according to government data, with the London Borough of Brent pulling in the highest amount of any council at £28.9 million.
Regulations laid before parliament this month will bring in a series of changes to developer contributions from 1 September.
A new requirement for councils to produce and maintain statements detailing developer contributions funding and spending will place new burdens on them, observers predict, but will also present opportunities for both authorities and applicants.
