New Forest District Council logoNew Forest District Council: Just a quick update following last month’s post to report that the New Forest District Council has now adopted both its Local Plan Part 2 and its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule.

The Community Infrastructure Levy blanket residential rate of £80 per sqm (and zero rate for anything else) will not come into effect until 06 April 2015. Until then the usual Section 106 contributions will continue to be applied. Many developments, especially commercial ones involving new floorspace, will be better off under CIL.

Do you need a quick refresher on CIL? Our briefing note is available here. Any other queries? Please get in touch.
