Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Proposed CIL Rates Q06 Do you agree with the proposed CIL rates for retail development? If not, what do you think the rates should be and why?

  • Comment ID: 7805313/cil/6
  • Status: Accepted
No. Retail development does provide employment but at a cost to community centres. The proposal for large scale development should be £140 but remain as proposed for smaller developments since they can feature at the core of new communities eg Locking airport development. Rural employment opportunities must be encouraged and a low rate for development in such areas should be set.

Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Proposed CIL Rates Q07 Do you agree with the proposed CIL rates for student accommodation? If not, what do you think the rates should be and why?

  • Status: Accepted
Yes. Students do bring money into an area but in doing so their demand for local housing may well reduce availability to those living and working in the area.

Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Proposed CIL Rates Q08 Do you agree with the proposed CIL rates for care homes? If not, what do you think the rates should be and why?

  • Comment ID: 7805313/cil/8
  • Status: Accepted
No. The geographical zones are acceptable as proposed. However, given the current need for care homes - a need which is likely to increase, the charging rate should be reduced to £20 to encourage development. Private housing should not necessarily see the same rate proposals as for care homes and the charging rate should be increased in Zone A to £40. The building of care homes may well free up some housing.

Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Introduction Q01 Do you agree that North Somerset Council should introduce a CIL?

  • Comment ID: 7805313/cil/1
  • Status: Accepted
Yes. Little choice - the intention of CIL appears to be to achieve a reduction in charges applicable under S106 to the benefit of the developers not the Community. CIL does however see finance for developments previously outside S106.

Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Proposed CIL Rates Q09 Do you agree with the proposed CIL rates for commercial development? If not, what do you think the rates should be and why?

  • Comment ID: 7805313/cil/9
  • Status: Accepted
No. Any development has the potential to impact on communities and on this basis alone both commercial categories should set a charge of £20.

Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Spending the CIL Q17 Do you agree that this table sets out an appropriate split between CIL and Section 106 funded infrastructure? Are there any changes you would propose?

  • Comment ID: 7805313/cil/17
  • Status: Accepted
Yes. Should like to see a specific reference (under CIL) for the provision of allotment land for new communities where there is evidence demand will exist.

Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Introduction Q02 Are there any alternative mechanisms that should be considered to ensure that developers contribute appropriately towards infrastructure to support development, in particular the cumulative effects of development?

  • Comment ID: 7805313/cil/2
  • Status: Accepted
Yes but additional rather than alternative. Cil is capped and thus would not allow for developments posing a particular and perhaps costly impact on a community.
