We are progressing a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) to secure necessary developer contributions to pay for key strategic infrastructure. CIL is a standardised levy that is charged to types of new development for the purposes of raising funds to deliver infrastructure to support new development.
It has come to oyr attention that there was an error on the Draft Charging Schedule - Residential Charging Zone Map that was initially published in October 2015. The Map has now been revised to correctly include the Dunston Hill housing site, an approach which is consistent with the supporting evidence published in support of the initial publication, and with previous stages of consultation on Gateshead’s CIL.
All representations which have been received to date on the CIL Draft Charging Schedule published on 26 October 2015 (and which invited representations from 26 October to 7 December 2015) remain valid and will be taken into account and submitted to the examiner as the CIL process is taken forward, together with any additional representations received during this further representation period.
Gateshead Council is therefore inviting further representations on its CIL Draft Charging Schedule, and associated evidence, from 21 December 2015 to 24 January 2016, taking into account the correction outlined above.
Representations can be made online, by email or post:
