Views sought on Ryedale local levy proposal
11:36am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
RESIDENTS in Ryedale are being asked for their views on a local levy which would see developers wanting to bring projects forward make payments towards schools, roads and other schemes.
Funds from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) can also be used for open space, health facilities and flood defences, as well as other transport improvements, and would go towards projects mapped out in the Ryedale Plan development blueprint.
Ryedale District Council is now holding a consultation on how much developers would be charged and what levels of the tariff would be appropriate for different types of development, while still ensuring schemes can be taken forward.
The CIL in Ryedale would not apply to the part of the district which is within the North York Moors National Park.
Most buildings classed as those which people “normally use” would be liable for the levy, but it would not include projects such as wind turbines.
More information is available by phone the council’s forward planning officer Daniel Wheelwright on 01653 600666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
