Local Authorities, under direction from Government, are working towards imposing a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), a sum of money that will be payable on all qualifying development. This effects housing, commercial and retail development. RRA is concerned that the levy is calculated based upon a matrix of variables, which are open to interpretation, and as such it is an inaccurate levy – or more importantly a blunt instrument that may kill off any development plans particularly in regional and rural areas. RRA believes the CIL is tantamount to a stealth-tax to prop up local authority spending. What are your views? We would be pleased to hear.
