What Happens Next?

If any changes to the DCS are necessary as a result of the consultation, the charging authority must prepare a ‘Statement of Modifications’. 

The submission version of the DCS alongside a ‘Statement of Modifications’ (if required) will be taken through a formal decision making process.  Subject to approval, the DCS will be formally submitted for Examination. 

Upon submission, there will be a representation period to allow for comments on the ‘Statement of Modifications’ (if required).  Any representations at this stage will be sent to the Examiner for consideration. 

The timetable to examination and adoption of a charging schedule is set out in the Local Development Scheme adopted by the Council on 9 January 2019 and subsequently uploaded to the Council’s web site.

Community Infrastructure Levy - archive 2015

Arun District Council is in the process of preparing a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). This is a charging schedule that allows funds to be raised from developers to pay for infrastructure that is needed as a result of development. When in place the levy will apply to most new buildings and will largely replace the use of Section 106 developer contributions.
Work has been undertaken to prepare a Viability Assessment and Infrastructure Delivery Plan which have informed the setting of the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule. These documents are available below. Please note - It was brought to our attention at a late stage in preparing the PDCS that the residential charging zones 1 and 2 identified in the charging schedule do not align with the residential charging zones shown on Map A. To clarify, Residential Zone 1 is Inland / Village and Residential Zone 2 is Urban / Coastal. The GIS layers available on the Council’s website are correct.
Public consultation on the Arun CIL Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule and Draft Reg 123 list ran for a period of 6 weeks (between 9th March 2015 and 20th April 2015). The representations from this consultation are under review.
It should be noted that the preparation of the Draft Charging Schedule has been put on hold whilst further work is undertaken on the Arun Local Plan as part of the Examination in Public suspension period.
Further details regarding the preparation of the Draft Charging Schedule will be provided on this webpage once work has recommenced.
