Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

Charging Schedules for Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk

In April 2010 a new way of collecting developer contributions to help fund infrastructure projects was introduced. The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities to charge a tariff, at a locally set rate, on many types of new development. The money can then be used to pay for a wide range of additional infrastructure that is required as a result of development. This can include transport schemes, green infrastructure and community facilities.

Charging schedules were produced jointly by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council, working together with Norfolk County Council as the Greater Norwich Development Partnership. Each of the district councils is the “Charging Authority” for their area and a separate charging schedule has been produced for each district.
