More than £100 million is expected to be raised in the coming years to fund essential infrastructure such as roads, schools, parks and public transport facilities. through a levy developers pay on all new developments in Teignbridge. 

New rates are being proposed which seek to balance the housing supply and infrastructure delivery envisaged in the draft local plan with site viability which takes in a range of issues such as affordable housing provision, build cost and sales values.

Residents can write to CIL Review, Spatial Planning and Delivery, Forde House, Newton Abbot, TQ12 4XX or email [email protected] with any feedback.

Once the consultation ends, the draft CIL Charging Schedule and all comments received will be submitted for examination in public by the planning inspectorate.

Since introducing the levy in 2014, town and parish councils have received £4.6m of CIL funding and the council has contributed more than £10 million to projects.
