5. Do any CIL receipts get funnelled down to Parish Councils and Parish Meetings?
Parish Councils will get a proportion of the CIL receipts raised from development in their Parish. If they have a Neighbourhood Plan in place, they will get 25% of the receipts and they will be expected to use these to deliver the ‘provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure or anything else to address the demands that development places on an area. If so minded, they can return some of these receipts to higher authorities to enable mutually beneficial projects to proceed. Parishes that do not have a Neighbourhood Plan will get 15% of the receipts and this will be capped at an equivalent of £100 per dwelling per year.
