Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Annual Reporting

Swindon Borough Council is required to pass a percentage of the total CIL receipts raised in a town/parish council area directly to the town or parish council where the development is taking place. This is known as the ‘meaningful proportion’.

Currently the percentage is set at 15% or, in areas where there is a neighbourhood development plan, the amount passed to the parish or town council is 25%.  Central Swindon South Parish Council does not yet have an adopted Neighbourhood Development Plan.

To ensure transparency, each financial year, town or parish councils that have received funds must publish a summary of:

  • The total CIL funds received
  • What CIL funds have been spent on
  • The total amount of CIL funds retained at the end of the reported year and any previous years.

The reports for the Parish Council are below -
