We want your views on our Lambeth CIL draft charging schedule that will support growth in the borough. Have your say now by emailing or writing to us. The consultation runs from 31 January to 13 March 2020.

We are amending our CIL rates in order to ensure that the council can secure sufficient funding for infrastructure to support growth in the Borough.

Lambeth Council consulted on a Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS) in October 2018. The Community Infrastructure Levy (Amendment) (England) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 (the ‘2019 Regulations’) amended the CIL Regulations and took effect in September 2019.

A Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule is no longer required as the first step in the process of adopting a revised CIL Charging Schedule. However, Regulation 13 (transitional and saving provisions) of the 2019 Regulations states that if the Council had already held the first round public consultation, comments received in response to this consultation on the PDCS must be considered.

The Council has considered the representations made during the consultation on the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule in 2018.

The Infrastructure Delivery Plan was reviewed and updated to meet the needs of the borough between the financial years 2019/20 and 2034/35.

The Viability Study was also reviewed and updated in support of both the proposed amendments to the Lambeth CIL Charging Schedule and the Draft Revised Lambeth Local Plan Proposed Submission Version (DRLLP PSV).

The Viability Review dated December 2019 recommends no changes to proposed revisions to Lambeth's CIL rates. Following approval by the Cabinet, the Council will now proceed to the next stage of reviewing its CIL rates by publishing a Draft Charging Schedule in accordance with the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended).

We're now consulting on a second round public consultation on the Draft Charging Schedule that will run for six weeks from 31 January to 13 March 2020.

This will run alongside the publication of the Draft Revised Lambeth Local Plan Proposed Submission Version (DRLLP PSV) prior to submission for independent examination.
