Community Infrastructure Plan (CIL) / Infrastructure Development Plan (IDP)
Halton's Planning Policy Framework is the collective name for the collection of planning documents that are currently being produced by the Council and which will eventually replace Halton's Unitary Development Plan (UDP). Halton's planning policy documents consists of Local Plans and Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) in addition to a number of process documents, including the Statement of Community Involvement and Annual Monitoring Reports (AMRs). The Core Strategy Local Plan is the central planning policy document for Halton and sets out the Borough's overarching strategy for future development.
Current Consultation: Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The Council is considering the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy. A ‘scoping’ consultation was undertaken in 2016 however additional work has been undertaken prior to the completion of a Viability Study. This Whole Plan Viability Study has recently been completed. A revised LDS (Local Plan timetable) will be considered by the Council later in the year and will set out the timetable for any further work on CIL.
Infrastructure Plan is intended to identify the main items of additional infrastructure needed to support the level of new development envisaged within the Borough. It is intended to identify when the infrastructure will be needed, who is responsible for its provision and how it will be funded. The latest review was undertaken in June 2019
