Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended)
Regulation 23: Publication of the examiner’s recommendations
Charging Schedules for Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk
The Charging Schedules for Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk were examined under a joint examination on 16 and 17 October 2012 by Inspector Keith Holland, BA (HONS) DIPTP MRTPI ARICS. His recommendations have been published and his report can be downloaded here.
The report is dated 4 December 2012. The delay in publishing the report was unavoidable whilst one or two points were clarified by both parties.
In summary, the Examiner agreed with the vast majority of the proposals set out, although he concluded that the housing market in greater Norwich was still too fragile to sustain the charges proposed by the councils. The Examiner therefore approved the Charging Schedules subject to a modification to the residential rates. This modification is for the levy to be set at £75 per square metre for properties in Norwich and those parts of Broadland and South Norfolk closest to the city (Zone A), and at £50 in the rural parts of Broadland and South Norfolk (Zone B). The levy on flats in Norwich of five storeys and above is recommended at £65.
