The Community Infrastructure Levy (Amendment) (England) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 came into force on 1 September 2019. Under these regulations, Infrastructure Funding Statements (IFS) have replaced CIL Regulation 123 Lists as the mechanism through which projects are identified for CIL funding.
The IFS will be published annually, and provide a summary of all financial and non-financial developer contributions relating to Section 106 and CIL within the Borough. It will include a statement of infrastructure projects or types that we intend to, or may wholly or partly funded by CIL.

We are required to pass a percentage of the total CIL receipts raised in a town or parish council directly to the town or parish council where the development is taking place. This is known as the 'meaningful proportion'.
Currently the percentage is set at 15 per cent (capped at £100 pa per council tax paying dwelling), or in areas where there is a made Neighbourhood Plan 25 per cent (uncapped). To ensure transparency, each financial year the town or parish councils that have received CIL must publish a summary of:
- Total CIL funds received
- What CIL funds have been spent on each project
- Total CIL funds received at the end of the reported year and any previous years.
We have established guidelines on the distribution of CIL funds that have been passed on to parish and town councils.
