Statement of Community Involvement

We have drafted a new Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). This includes information on how we consult with and involve the community on plan making, planning applications and development proposals, and neighbourhood planning, as well as our expectations of developers.

This is a statutory document we are required to publish, and is being produced so that residents, developers, and other groups can be better informed about the planning system and how they can get involved.

This consultation is your opportunity to provide feedback on our proposed approach to consultation and engagement.

The draft SCI is being consulted on from 30 September 2019 to 6 January 2020.

You can complete a questionnaire about the document.

Community Infrastructure Levy Review – Draft Charging Schedule

With the adoption of the new Local Plan (2015-2030) in 2018, we are undertaking a review of its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which sets out the requirements for the charging of CIL in the London Borough of Redbridge. The increased rates from development will be essential to help fund infrastructure needed to support the ambitious growth, as set out in the Plan, and mitigate adverse impacts of future development.

CIL was introduced in 2012 and is a charge on development to help fund infrastructure such as transport schemes and schools which is required to help support and accommodate new growth from development.

We have prepared economic evidence to support the revised CIL charging schedule. The evidence recommended an increase in the charging levy across the borough, with differential rates and charging areas, as per the regulations. The new charging areas and rates were set out in the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS). Consultation on the PDCS and the supporting documents ran from Wednesday 21 November 2018 to Wednesday 16 January 2019, in order to explore the appropriateness of the charging rates set out in the PDCS.  Following the conclusion of this consultation, comments from representors were reviewed and considered before the final Draft Charging Schedule consultation.

The consultation on the Draft Charging Schedule (DCS) will take place for 6 weeks from Friday 8 November 2019 to Friday 20 December 2019.  It has been extended by one week due to an issue with the originally produced consultation documents.

Consultation for the draft Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

We have drafted a Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). The SPD includes guidance and information on monetary and non-monetary contributions which will be sought by the Council.

The SPD underwent a period of public consultation starting on Thursday 30 May to Friday 26 July 2019. The final version of the document was approved at theCabinet meeting on 16 September 2019.

BNP Paribas has been commissioned to undertake a viability review of the Planning Obligations SPD. The attached document contains the outcomes of the testing. The report concludes a positive outcome from the testing of the obligations. The report states: 'The evidence base presented in this report provides justification that the Council’s emerging requirements will not put development at risk having regards to the flexible application of other policy requirements, most notably affordable housing. Our appraisals do not show that all development typologies can viably deliver all of the emerging requirements, but that the bulk of schemes will be able to make a significant contribution towards affordable housing and other planning requirements.'
