Next Steps

Following this consultation, the Council will consider the responses received and any other evidence that emerges and use these to inform the charging schedule it intends to implement.

Once the Council considers that the Draft Charging Schedule is ready for independent examination, it will be published for a four-week consultation period together with the relevant supporting evidence and the responses received to this consultation.

During the four-week period, representations may be made and any person making a representation has the right to be heard at the CIL examination. It is anticipated that the four-week consultation period will take place in early 2013, prior to an independent examination in the Spring / Summer of 2013.

  • The provisional timetable for the introduction of a CIL is as follows: 
  • Nov / Dec 2012: consultation on Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule.
  • Winter / Spring 2013: consultation on and submission of Draft Charging Schedule.
  • Summer 2013: Examination & Inspector’s report.
  • Earliest date of adoption by Full Council: 1 September 2013 (tbc).

Earliest date of implementation: 1 October 2013 (tbc).
