Examiner recommends revised Southwark CIL Schedule for approval

Southwark Council submitted its Draft revised CIL Charging Schedule to TRA for examination at the end of May. The schedule was examined by experienced examiner Terrence Kemmann-Lane, and a hearing was held on 26 July. 

The Charging Schedule had been revised to ensure that the Council can secure sufficient funding for infrastructure to support growth in the Old Kent Road Opportunity Area. The Examiner submitted his report to the Council in late August, in which he concluded that the Charging Schedule should be approved, subject to minor modifications. We understand that the Council anticipates that the revised Charging Schedule will be brought into effect on 1 December, following approval by council assembly. 

Submitting your CIL Schedule automatically to the Planning Inspectorate is not the only option available. TRA established its CIL Examination service to offer an alternative route for authorities looking to appoint a CIL Examiner. As an independent organisation that has provided support for the planning service for many years, TRA is ideally placed to offer a prompt, professional and competitively-priced CIL Examination service.
