CIL Examination - timeline

Draft Charging Schedule Consultation

The Council consulted on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS) between October and December 2014. The comments received and additional viability work carried out have informed the preparation of a Draft Charging Schedule (DCS).

The DCS sets out the proposed charging rates for Tamworth. The Council considers that these rates strike an appropriate balance between contributing to funding infrastructure and not putting development viability in Tamworth at risk. The DCS is also accompanied by the policies that the Council propose to adopt if CIL is approved.

In accordance with Regulation 16 the Draft Charging Schedule was subject to public consultation for 6 weeks between Friday 23rd October to Friday 4th December 2015.

18 representations were duly received during this consultation period which have been forwarded to the planning inspector for review as part of the CIL examination.

Details of the consultation including a summary of the representations are available in the Regulation 19 Statement of Consultation.

Modifications have been made by the Council to the Draft Charging Schedule as a result of this consultation and these are detailed in the Regulation 19 (d) Statement of Modifications along with a minor amendment to the Charging Zone Map in Appendix A to include National Grid Lines and reference numbers.
