CIL Reports

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is raised against new developments by the district council (SODC).  The parish council receives a portion of this.  The parish council must report yearly how much has been received, and how much has been spent.  CIL must be spent within 5 years of receiving it.

More information can be found on CIL on the government website.

 

S137 Grant Reports

The Local Government Act 1972, s137, gives the Council the power to “incur expenditure which in their opinion is in the interests of and will bring direct benefit to their area or any part of it or all or some of its inhabitants…….".  Each year there is a limit on how much can be given, and is based on a figure per elector in the Parish.  For the year 2020/2021 this figure is £8.32 per elector.

Any monies spent using S137 must be accounted for under its own heading in the budget.
