Community Infrastructure Levy Governance Proposals And Infrastructure Delivery Schedule Update 2016 - NOV16/CAB/67

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


That Cabinet approved the CIL Governance Proposals and Infrastructure Delivery Update 2016.

Reasons for the decision:

Through approving the CIL governance proposals, Cabinet would enable the council to meet its statutory duties for managing CIL receipts (including, administration, reporting and transfer of Neighbourhood Portion); and, to spend CIL receipts on strategic infrastructure.  Publication of the Infrastructure Delivery Update 2016 would provide an up to date schedule of infrastructure essential to support Peterborough’s growth.

Alternative options considered:

A ‘do nothing’ option (where no governance process put in place and the IDS is not updated) was considered.  However such an approach was not appropriate as the council would likely fail to meet its statutory duties for managing CIL receipts.  The current IDS (2014) was now deemed out of date, and therefore does not provide a suitable evidence base to inform spending decisions.
