The charging schedule was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination on 10 September 2015, together with a schedule of proposed minor modifications which were the subject of consultation from 16 September until 16 October 2015.
A copy of the letter confirming this submission is available to download together with the three responses received to the proposed minor modifications consultation.
Planning Inspector Mr Simon Emerson BSc, DipTP, MRTPI was the appointed CIL examiner.
The Examiner raised some initial concerns about the application of CIL charges for commercial development in different parts of the District. To address these concerns, the Council consulted on the introduction of settlement boundaries for the purposes of CIL to provide greater clarity as to where different CIL charges will apply.
The consultation ran from 20 November until 18 December 2015.
Suspension of examination
There was some discussion of a number of CIL matters alongside the Local Plan examination session held on Thursday 26 November 2015. In light of the suspension of the Local Plan examination, the CIL examination was suspended until January 2016 alongside the Local Plan. The Council is aiming to resume the CIL examination in Spring 2017 following consultation on the revised draft charging schedule. A copy of the letter from the CIL examiner confirming the suspension of the examination is available to download.
