Lewes District Council CIL Bidding Expression Of Interest 2020

Lewes District Council CIL Expressions of Interest 2020

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Regulations allow local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds from developers who are undertaking new building projects. The purpose is to help fund the provision of infrastructure needed to support development in their area.

The Lewes District Council CIL Charging Schedule has been implemented in the areas of the district that lie outside the South Downs National Park since 1 December 2015. By becoming a Charging Authority, the Council also has the responsibility for ensuring infrastructure is delivered to support the growth in the district.

When we receive money raised from CIL, 5% is allocated to administrative costs and 15% must be passed to Town and Parish Councils (this rises to 25% in areas with an adopted neighbourhood plan). We are inviting for Expressions of Interest for funding from the remaining CIL Income.

The Expression Of Interest Round is open until COB on the 10th August 2020.

Infrastructure Providers that have submitted an Expression of Interest that satisfies the basic criteria will then be invited to submit a formal bid in the LDC Bidding Round. Providers who are not invited to make a further bid will be provided feedback and guidance as to why their EOI was not successful.

If you do have any queries or would like assistance in completing the EOI Form please do not hesitate to contact us at CIL.Lewes@Lewes-Eastbourne.gov.uk or call 01273 471600 and ask to speak to a member of the Planning Policy CIL Team.
