6. Spending CIL
We will set out how we intend to spend CIL in our Annual Infrastructure Funding Statement.
CIL received by us is currently allocated in the following approximate proportions:
- 15% for neighbourhood funding (see below)
- 8% for mitigating the recreational impacts arising from new development on European protected habitats (Exe Estuary, Pebblebed heaths, and Dawlish Warren)
- 72% for major infrastructure, including St.Sidwell's Point leisure centre.
- 5% for the costs of administering CIL
We are expected by government to engage local communities on the use of at least 15% of CIL receipts.
Proposals to establish an Exeter City Fund were approved by the Council at its meeting on 23 July 2019. The neighbourhood portion of CIL will be distributed through this mechanism in future.
