Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) was introduced by West Lancashire Borough Council in 2015; the Levy imposes a charge on certain new developments, based on the size of the properties being built. This is designated to underwrite the cost of improving the infrastructure within the Borough necesitated by such development.

The Parish Council receives 15% of this Levy for developments carried out within its own Parish.

It is required by the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended) Regulation 62A that the Council report on the monies received in the previous financial year each December.
