Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

CIL is a charge on certain types of development in Waverley. The money collected is then used to fund the infrastructure in our Borough which is needed to support new development. The Waverley Borough Council CIL Charging Schedule was effective from 1 March 2019.  Please note, CIL is triggered by commencement; payments may be made by instalment in accordance with the adopted Instalment Policy.

S106 Contributions

Section 106 agreements are legally binding documents that secure works or funding to make a development acceptable in planning terms. These are know as S106 contributions. Since the introduction of CIL (01 March 2019), S106 contributions only deal with site-specific maters such as affordable housing provision, open space and play space etc. 

S106 agreements are a land charge meaning the liability for obligations, unless breached by a previous owner, transfers to any new landowner. 

There are two main types of S106 financial contributions; pooled and bespoke.

Pooled contributions were secured in conjunction with the 2008 Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) published by Waverley Borough Council. These contributions are called Planning Infrastructure Contributions (PIC). PIC was secured on a tariff calculated using the anticipated occupation of the development. They were then put into pots based on the area they were secured in and used to fund projects in that area. PIC was secured up until April 2015 when bespoke S106 agreements came into effect.

Bespoke contributions means that a project has to be identified, justified and costed before a financial contribution for infrastructure can be secured. The money secured can then only be used to fund the project identified.
