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 https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TWD6239 ). 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.
