Lambeth aiming to raise more from development

The PDCS is the first step in the process of adopting a revised CIL Charging Schedule. This will be followed by another round of public consultation on a Draft Charging Schedule and submission to an Examination in Public before the new CIL rates are adopted via a resolution of the full Council.

The proposed revisions include the following:

  • Higher rates for residential developments, including co-living schemes
  • Four charging zones instead of the previous three
  • Separate rates for self-contained sheltered housing, extra care schemes and care homes
  • Higher rates for offices applied to both Zones A and B
  • Higher rates for hotels, student accommodation and large retail to be applied across the whole borough
  • A clearer definition for large retail

The increase in CIL rates is aimed at ensuring that the Council can secure sufficient funding for infrastructure to support growth in the Borough.
