Spending the CIL

From the total of the CIL receipts collected, 15% of the generated income is required to be allocated towards the provision of new infrastructure in the community in which development has taken place, up to a limit of £100 per existing Council Tax dwelling. This rises to 25% of receipts where a community has a Neighbourhood Plan or Development Order in place (applicable to Bassett Ward). 

Up to 5% of the levy receipts can be spent on administering and enforcing the levy and are allocated for such purposes.

70% - 80% of the total CIL receipts can be spent on strategic infrastructure for the City.
