Annual Summary of Community Infrastructure Levy Receipts
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is money paid by developers to local government in order to fund projects for local communities.
The CIL is payable on most residential developments and goes to the planning authority (in our case Daventry District Council). A proportion is provided to the Parish Council. Because Woodford Halse now has an approved Neighbourhood Plan, that proportion is now 25%. Parish Councils can only spend the CIL on certain types of project.
Each year the Parish Council must publish a monitoring report detailing receipts and payments and the amount (if any) retained from previous years. In 2018-19 there was no new CIL received and none spent but the Council has a balance to spend of £26184.81.

This report is also available via the Budget & Accounts page.
