CIL - Date of Approval for use
Members of Ryedale Council approved use of Charging Schedule on the Thursday, 14 January at a meeting of Extraordinary Full Council. The date for commencement of the Charging Schedule is the Tuesday, 1 March 2016.
This will cover any relevant application that is determined from the date Council resolves to implement CIL (1 March 2016). Therefore, it is important that both land owners and developers are aware of the implications of the CIL charge because it is a non-negotiable, fixed charge. Accordingly it will be necessary to either establish that the scheme is exempt, or factor this into the viability assessment as a fixed element of cost.
