[a] Following the Council’s Notice of Motion submitted to the above, the resolution recorded in the SPCA 6th December 2021 AGM Minutes is:
The meeting debated a motion submitted by Penkridge Parish Council which highlighted the fact that that many principal authorities had, thus far, failed to implement the provisions in the Localism Act 2011 providing for the introduction of Community Infrastructure Levy regimes and had, conversely, continued to rely solely on section 106 Planning Obligation Agreements with developers to fund infrastructure improvements, to the continuing disadvantage of parish councils and local communities.
It was resolved that letters should be sent to those local planning authorities (*) in Staffordshire which had failed to introduce a CIL charging schedule, reminding them of the effect on local communities of denying local councils the opportunity to exercise some control over spending on infrastructure and community facilities. It was further agreed that similar letters should be sent to selected Staffordshire MPs inviting them to put pressure on the LPAs concerned to introduce CIL regimes as soon as was practicable. (NB * Both Lichfield City Council and Cannock Chase District Council adopted CIL charging schedules in 2015 -16.)
