Pannal and Burn Bridge Parish Council SCA Proposal

For many years as you know the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has had a policy position that it should be mandatory for planning authorities to adopt regimes using the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).  Many planning authorities prefer to retain Section 106 as the system used to apply community benefit under the planning system, ignoring the CIL system.  This means that many local councils which have made a Neighbourhood Plan and are entitled in theory to 25% of CIL receipts from their planning authority to plough back into their community – cannot access such funds if their planning authority does not use a CIL regime.  NALC believes it should be mandatory for planning authorities for this reason to adopt CIL regimes.


Pannal and Burn Bridge Parish Council in the Harrogate Borough Council area of West Yorkshire have had a particularly difficult experience and for this reason wanted to submit a proposal direct to Government under the Sustainable Communities Act to ask Government to make the adoption of CIL regimes by local councils mandatory.  In order to help us gather evidence to support this proposal please complete a short survey (at ).  It will only take 5 minutes - by 17:00 on Friday 29 June 2018


The survey summary report generated will be used to support the proposal likely to be submitted by Pannal and Burn Bridge Parish Council to MHCLG by end July 2018.





About Us

The East Riding and Northern Lincolnshire Local Councils Association, known as ERNLLCA, is an independent body which supports parish and town councils in the North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire. There is an equivalent organisation for each “shire county” area or equivalent in the country and all of these bodies, which are known as County Associations, join together as members of the National Association of Local Councils, or as it is more commonly known, NALC.

ERNLLCA (and its predecessor organisation, the Humberside Association of Parish and Town Councils) has been serving parish and town councils, and parish meetings, since 1974. In the years since there have been many changes to local government and the expectations placed on our tier of local government has grown and grown. ERNLLCA is a member organisation and its Officers cannot advise members of the public on matters relating to specific parish and town councils. If you have a query about an individual parish or town council you should contact the relevant Clerk or Chairman.

ERNLLCA is funded wholly by its members and does not receive any support from any of Principal Authorities or from the Government and exists purely for the benefit of its member parish and town councils. It works closely with Principal Authorities, Government Departments, Professional Bodies, Government Agencies and the Voluntary Sector to promote and support the work of member councils.

ERNLLCA operates a bottom-up approach to its governance. All member councils have the opportunity to meet 3 times a year through a system of District Committees. Each council may send any number of representatives to these meetings but only two may vote. Each District Committee elects representatives to serve on ERNLLCA’s Executive Committee and the Executive Committee elects a delegate to the meetings of the National Association of Local Councils. The current membership of the Executive Committee can be viewed in the Governance section of the members' pages.
