Community Infrastructure Levy

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy charged on most new development within the local authority area. The money is used to pay for new infrastructure required as a result of the new development. This infrastructure can be wide-ranging, including schools, road schemes, health facilities and sports and leisure facilities.

Stratfield Mortimer Parish Council  receives a proportion of CIL monies from West Berkshire Council for applicable development within the parish.

Local councils have a legal duty to prepare an annual report of CIL received and spent in any financial year, including reporting on the following matters;

  • Total CIL receipts for the reported year;
  • Total CIL expenditure for the reported year;
  • Summary of CIL expenditure during the reported year including the items and amounts of CIL expenditure on each item.
