In August in our big Community Infrastructure Levy round-up we reported that Poole were to begin charging CIL on 01 January 2013. Well now we have exclusive inside knowledge that it is going to be delayed…

…until 02 January 2013.

Don’t ask us why.

Anyway its not too late to sneak an 8-week application through before then so if you have any development proposals surfacing in Poole (especially anything in the green and yellow higher rate zones) give us a call (now!) and we can advise as to whether the proposal would be better off under the current Section 106 contributions or CIL. If it will be much cheaper under the present system it may be worth hurrying to try and get an approval through before January.
