Dear Sir/Madam

This consultation, on a Draft Charging Schedule, sets out the Council’s proposals for the type of development that could be subject to a CIL charge, the proposed charging rates, potential geographic charging zones and the draft Regulation 123 List (which sets out the types of infrastructure that the Council may fund, entirely or in part, through CIL).
