Labour could scrap CIL and section 106

Thu 27th June 2013, 2:42 pm

Labourís planning spokeswoman Roberta Blackman-Woods says her party is considering scrapping community infrastructure levies and section 106 agreements.

In an interview with Planning magazine, Blackman-Woods stated that Labour could replace current regulation with a “community investment fund”.

The fund would include both developer contributions and government money to be spend on local infrastructure, but potentially also housing.

One of the main differences CIL and section 106 would be the creation of an investment fund pay for projects over a longer period of time.
