CIL Funding Programme 2020/21

Closed 8 Nov 2019

Opened 10 Oct 2019


The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Regulations were introduced nationally in April 2010.  The principle behind CIL is that most development has some impact on infrastructure and should therefore contribute to the cost of providing or improving infrastructure. CIL allows local authorities (Council’s) in England and Wales to raise funds from developers who are undertaking new building projects in their area. The CIL money collected can be used to pay for a wide range of infrastructure which is needed to support new development.

We're consulting on two types of CIL funding:

  • The strategic portion of CIL which can be spent anywhere in the Borough
  • The Ormskirk neighbourhood portion of CIL which must only be spent in Ormskirk

The CIL Funding Programme document which sets out the shortlisted projects, and a series of supporting documents explaining our justification for the selected projects, can be found at We suggest you read the Funding Programme document before answering these questions.  

We want to know what you think of the schemes we've shortlisted to receive CIL monies in 2020/21.

  • Do you agree with the shortlisted infrastructure projects?
  • Do you agree with our reasoning?
  • Can you suggest any other projects you consider to be high priority or that you think could be delivered in 2020/21?
  • Can you suggest any other infrastructure schemes that you think could be included on the IDS?

Comments will be accepted until Friday 8 November 2019.

If you have any queries on this consultation please contact or phone 01695 585171. 

What happens next

Your comments will be used to help inform how CIL monies are used in 2020/21. A final decision will be made by Cabinet in January 2020.
