Local authorities can charge a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on new developments to support the infrastructure needed. This letter explains changes to this non-devolved Levy.

The UK Government has decided that, for Wales, the 'meaningful amount' is 15% of CIL revenues and this should be passed on to Community Councils.  

The letter also explains local planning authorities should continue to consider best practice in using Section 106 agreements to help develop affordable houses. This should be done in line with Local Development Plan (LDP) policies.
