On April 1, 2015, we introduced a CIL. You`ll find our loading and loading areas below in our CIL charging plan. You can also see the types of infrastructure we fund with the Lewisham CIL Council in the list of infrastructure below. A planning obligation is a kind of legal contract entered into by the proponent, other interested parties and the local planning authority. Section 106 of the Planning Act 1990 allows the local planning authority to make such commitments. The government considered S106 to be a partial and variable response to the registration of infrastructure funding. That is why the Community Infrastructure Tax (CIL) is now included in the 2008 Programming Act. Section 106 of the agreements therefore remains next to the CIL, but it is limited to the infrastructure needed to directly mitigate the impact of a proposal. Regulations restrict the use of planning obligations to ensure that individual developments are not charged for the same infrastructure elements through the planning obligations under Sections 106 and CIL. In addition, and unique in London, the mayor levies his own CIL to fund $300 million for Crossrail. London councils are working to ensure that the speed at which The CIL Mayoral is set does not jeopardize the viability of developments and the ability of urban district ISCs to increase the necessary infrastructure resources.
We are working with the districts and the GLA to ensure that the requirement for districts to collect the Mayor-CIL represents as low a burden as possible for districts. The possibilities for the common use of planning obligations are the guarantee of affordable housing and the definition of the nature and date of that dwelling; to make financial contributions to the provision of infrastructure or affordable housing. But these are not the only uses for a s106 obligation. A s106 obligation may: Section 106 agreements are currently used to ensure the provision of affordable housing on site, but under the new proposals, affordable housing is provided through the IL. The proposals provide that registered suppliers (RPs) will be able to purchase affordable housing from real estate developers at a discount on market prices. The difference between the price sold on the PC and the market price is offset by the IL`s final responsibility to the local planning authority. The IL seems to rely on RPs who buy affordable housing from the developer, as is currently the case. However, the removal of the use of s106 agreements can have an impact on RPs and their funders, and the ability of RPs to purchase units in general may affect them.
