Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL) - distribution and Round 1 spend pdf icon PDF 631 KB

Additional documents:


The Leader introduced this report which set out four options for the allocation of NCIL across Haringey, the advantages and disadvantages of each option and the option that is recommended the Council pursue. The recommended option allocated NCIL in a much fairer basis between areas with a tilt towards redistributing NCIL in favour of areas that experienced more development and Tottenham which had the greatest investment need.


Round 1 Consultation (2018) spend

The report also set out a number of NCIL projects within each of the 9 areas which approval was sought to spend NCIL to progress. These projects were identified by the community through a Round 1 Consultation on NCIL spend in late 2018 and have been selected for delivery in accordance with the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended) (the ?Regulations?), the criteria in the Council‘s CIL Governance document for prioritising infrastructure projects to be funded by CIL, and the Borough Plan priorities.


Round 2 Consultation (2020)

Lastly, the report set out, for information, an overview of the Round 2 Consultation on NCIL spending which will take place later in 2020.




That the Leader of the Council:


1.    Approves the changes to the CIL Governance document set out in Section 8.2 of this report.

2.    Approves the allocation of all NCIL collected to date across the borough as set out in Option D in Table 4 in section 9 of this report.

3.    Approves spending NCIL on Round 1 Consultation (2018) projects as set out in Table 5 in section 10 of this report.


Reasons for decision


The collection and spending of CIL including NCIL is governed by the Planning Act 2008 and the Regulations. The Government provides further guidance on CIL and NCIL in the form of Planning Practice Guidance (PPG).


Regulation 59F of the Regulations enables the Council to set aside 15% of CIL receipts (25% in areas with an adopted Neighbourhood Plan Neighbourhood Plan) to support the development of the relevant area by funding— (a) the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure; or (b) anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area. This portion of CIL is known as NCIL.


The total amount of NCIL funding collected amounts to over £2m. None of this has currently been spent. The Council‘s current adopted approach for the spending of NCIL set out in the existing CIL Governance document is that NCIL should be spent on neighbourhood projects within the neighbourhood of contributing development. If collected monies are allocated to NCIL areas based on where the CIL was collected there will be large discrepancies across neighbourhoods as to the amount available to spend. The amounts vary not just due to differing amounts of development, but also due to differing CIL rates (the residential CIL rate for the Western Charging Zone is over 17 times that of the Eastern Charging Zone per square metre and the residential CIL rate for the Central Charging Zone is 11 times that of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
