Community Infrastructure Levy
The Council has a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) in place for Rotherham. It will help to secure contributions from developers towards infrastructure to support growth, such as:
- Extensions to schools
- Transport schemes
- Improvements to open space, and more
These payments are required alongside planning permission for certain types of development. They will work in tandem with payments negotiated as "Section 106" planning obligations.
The CIL rates are set out in a charging schedule, effective from 3rd July 2017.
