Westminster City Council is implementing a Westminster Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) taking effect on 1 May 2016 which will be charged alongside the Mayor of London’s CIL which took effect on 1 April 2012.
As required by the CIL legislation, the council consulted on a preliminary draft charging schedule in September/October 2014 and a draft charging schedule in June/July 2015. The charging schedule is the legal document setting out the rates of CIL that will be charged.
The draft charging schedule and supporting evidence was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination on 9 October 2015.
The council appointed Mr. Philip Staddon BSc, Dip, MBA, MRTPI of the Planning Inspectorate as the independent examiner of Westminster’s CIL draft charging schedule and a public hearing was held on Monday 30 November 2015. The examiner produced an examiner’s note/hearing agenda.
In his report to Westminster City Council dated 23 December 2015, the examiner recommended approval of the charging schedule.
