Community Infrastructure Levy: Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule 25 May - 6 July 2018

Harrogate Borough Council is holding a six week consultation from 25 May to 4.30pm on 6 July 2018 on the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows councils to raise funds from developers undertaking new building projects in the district. The money can be used to fund infrastructure projects such as schools, open space, flood defences and transport improvements that are needed to support development.

Charging authorities set out the CIL rates in a charging schedule. CIL rates are expressed in pounds per square metre and will be levied against most new development. The council must set CIL rates based on evidence of the viability of different types of development and produce a charging schedule that is subject to an independent examination.

Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule consultation 26 May to 4.30pm on 6 July.

We are consulting on the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS). This document contains:

  • a brief explanation of the CIL
  • a schedule of which developments will be liable to pay CIL
  • how the charge is calculated; and
  • evidence to support the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule

As part of the preparation of the charging schedule a CIL Viability Assessment was produced.

Consultation documents can be viewed below:

Hard copies of the consultation documents are available to view at the Civic Centre Harrogate, Knaresborough House, Ripon Town Hall and local libraries across the district.

Consultation on the Ripon City Neighbourhood Plan submission draft

Ripon City Council has submitted a draft Neighbourhood Plan for the parish of Ripon and Harrogate Borough Council is now required to start the formal process of a public examination by an independent examiner.

If successful at both examination and public referendum, the Neighbourhood Plan will be used to determine planning applications in the parish of Ripon.

The local community and stakeholders have already been involved in the preparation of the plan, including a formal consultation between the 19 September and 23 December 2016. A further consultation is now required to be carried out by the Local Planning Authority (in this case Harrogate Borough Council), before the draft Plan can be submitted to an independent examiner.

The consultation runs from Friday 1 June 2018 to 4.30pm on Friday 13 July 2018.

Your feedback will help us to take decisions about the future of the facility.

2018 Boundary Review - Initial proposals for Parliamentary constituency boundaries

On 13 September 2016 the Boundary Commission for England published its initial proposals for new parliamentary constituency boundaries. This marks the start of 12 weeks of consultation on those proposals, during which the Commission is inviting people to view and comment on the new boundaries. The Commission is an independent public body, and must make its recommendations for new Parliamentary boundaries to Parliament in September 2018. This is the first of three rounds of consultation which will be undertaken before that date.

The plans showing the proposals for North Yorkshire constituencies, and for the Harrogate and Knaresborough constituency in particular, are now on display in the reception area at the Council Offices.

For the 2018 Review the Commission is promoting use of a consultation website as the primary tool for displaying proposals and receiving comments on them. The proposals and maps for the whole of the district - and the rest of England - are published on the website.
