Planning application validation review – Community Infrastructure Levy

Page 1 of 4

Closes 15 Dec 2019

Introduction

The council is planning on introducing a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on all liable planning permissions granted approval on and from 1st June 2020. This is subject to approval by Full Council on 2nd April 2020. CIL is a non-negotiable financial payment which will pay for infrastructure across the City. In Brighton & Hove, CIL will be levied on developments for Residential (C3); Extra Care/ Assisted Living (C2); Purpose Built Student Housing/ Purpose Built Shared Living Accommodation and Retail uses, subject to the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended) criteria.

Q1a. In order to assess CIL liability, the council will require a completed CIL Additional Information Form 1 as part of the validation process from 2nd March 2020 for all applications for full planning permission, including householder applications and reserved matters following an outline planning permission, and applications for lawful development certificates. This date allows for an appropriate lead in time before the CIL implementation date of 1st June 2020. The validation requirement will lapse if Full Council does not approve the commencement of CIL on 2 April 2020. Do you agree or disagree with the proposal to require the submission of a completed CIL Additional Information Form 1 as part of the validation process for the applications set out above?
