Have your say: How should money from developments be spent?

Reading Borough Council is consulting on how some of the money that is collected from new developments should be spent within local areas.

Money for infrastructure is collected from new developments through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). This is a charge based on the floorspace of new developments. The law states that 15% of the money collected must be spent on infrastructure in the local area in which the development takes place. This consultation asks for your views on how this share of the money collected in your local area should be spent.

Reading is divided into four areas for these purposes: Central (Abbey, Battle and Park wards); North (Caversham, Mapledurham, Peppard and Thames wards); South (Church, Katesgrove, Redlands and Whitley wards); and West (Kentwood, Minster, Norcot, Southcote and Tilehurst wards).

To take part in the consultation, please fill in the online questionnaire at www.reading.gov.uk/CILlocalspend by Friday 14 September 2018. The results of the consultation will inform a decision in the autumn on how the money will be spent in each area.

Please contact CIL@reading.gov.uk if there are any queries about the consultation, or about CIL more generally.
