Community Infrastructure Levy and Revised S106 Planning Obligations SPD

Government legislative changes mean the Community Infrastructure Levy will replace S106 Planning Obligations as the vehicle for funding the infrastructure that supports growth and development. Authorities will collect Community Infrastructure Levy contributions from developers to pay for the infrastructure needs created by development, with S106 Planning Obligations restricted in the main to site specific matters. This report details the results of the consultations on Brent’s Preliminary Draft Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule and the S106 Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document that closed at the end of last year. Approval is sought to publish, and submit for examination, a Draft Charging Schedule, as well as the adoption of the S106 Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document.

Decision:

(i)         that the comments received during the consultations on the Preliminary Draft Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule and the S106 Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document and the subsequent amendments made to both documents be noted;

(ii)        that agreement be given to the publication of the Draft Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule for submittal to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination, and, subject to any changes, recommend Full Council adopt the subsequent Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule;

(iii)       that approval be given to the Adoption of the S106 Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document at the same time as the proposed Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule.
