Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL)

Wednesday, 19 August 2020 - 11:59pm

A portion of the Community Infrastructure Levy is to be spent on local priorities; this is called Neighbourhood CIL (NCIL). There is currently about £2.9 million of Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL) funds. This is a fund the Council collects from developments and is required to be spent in consultation with local communities. Residents’ views were sought on community priorities to guide the allocation of NCIL funds between February and March 2020. The consultation responses have established community priorities to guide the allocation of NCIL funds. These were adopted by the Council as part of the NCIL Community Priorities document in June 2020.


There is currently £2.9 million of NCIL funds, collected by ward/neighbourhood plan area. The amount of funds available within each ward or neighbourhood plan area will vary depending on the amounts of CIL collected in that area. See the neighbourhood plans page for information on neighbourhood plans.
