Important Request From Sheffield Property and Regenration Committee (SPARC) RE The Community Infrastructure Levy
30th April 2014
Many of you will be aware that a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) will soon be applied on new constructions via the Local Authorities.
We have argued against this, and particularly the assumptions built into the assessments, for some time and, whilst the CIL is definitely coming, we do believe there is a one off opportunity to argue for a less punitive application of it. We are aware for instance where an incorrect assessment for the cost of building a house was assumed which will result in an extremely punitive levy in certain projects in the future. SPARC will fight your corner but we need evidence to do so. Can you please send us any examples/comments you have, whether they be actual or parochial so we can follow up and develop our case. This is extremely urgent. Please send via Jenna Selwood at the Chamber on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will collate your comments.
