The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support their area.
Since the Woodfordford cum Membris Neighbourhood Development Plan was approved in April 2018, the parish is eligible for 25% of CIL raised on developments in the Parish.
The Parish is required to report the amount of the levy received in each financial year, how much is spent and on what. Only certain types of spend can be covered by the CIL.

As will be seen, £15,678 was spent on the street lighting refurbishment programme, there were no receipts. A balance of £27,106 remained on hand for future projects and this amount was retained in the Parish accounts at the end of the year.
