Developers In Malton, Norton And Pickering Could Pay Towards Local Infrastructure
6:44am 2nd October 2013
Developers in Malton, Norton and Pickering could face having to pay for schools, doctors surgeries, flood defences and road improvements.
That's if Ryedale District Council introduces plans to charge house builders a fee to go towards improving the local infrastructure.
Ryedale District Council is currently consulting on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule or PDCS as part of its plans to introduce the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). The PDCS is the first consultation stage involved in introducing CIL.
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a local tariff that can be charged on new development in a local authority area to deliver infrastructure needed to support the growth of the District, say the council.
The funds raised from the CIL can they say be used to help provide a wide range of infrastructure such as schools, open space, health facilities, flood defences and transport improvements. These are those which are set out in the recently adopted Ryedale Plan – Local Plan Strategy.
In addition to demonstrating that there is a need for CIL in Ryedale, the Council says it also needs to undertake viability assessment of the impact of introducing a tariff. Alongside the PDCS consultation document, an economic viability assessment has been prepared which considers what levels of tariff would be appropriate for different types of development, whilst still ensuring that planned development can come forward.
All the information relating to the CIL consultation is available to view on the Council’s website at: http://ldf.ryedale.gov.uk The consultation runs until Friday 15 November. Responses to the consultation can be sent to : firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: Charlotte Bogg, Ryedale CIL Consultation, Ryedale District Council, Malton, North Yorkshire, YO17 7HH.
