Below is the process that the council has taken to introduce the Community Infrastructure Levy. 

December 2014

The Examiner’s report has been received by the council. The Examiner concluded that:

“In setting the CIL charging rate the Council have had regard to detailed evidence on infrastructure planning and the property market in the borough, and have carried out robust viability appraisals based on sound assumptions. The Council’s approach is realistic in achieving a reasonable level of income to address an acknowledged gap in infrastructure funding, while ensuring that development remains generally viable across the borough.

I conclude that the Chesterfield Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule satisfies the requirements of Section 212 of the 2008 Act and meets the criteria for viability in the 2010 Regulations (as amended). I therefore recommend that the Charging Schedule be approved.”
