Respondent: Sussex Police

Representation:

Sussex Police strongly support the introduction of CIL within Rother, as set out in the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule.

The Infrastructure Funding Gap Analysis provides evidence that there is a significant funding deficit, and the proposed levy will go partway to bridging that gap and subsequently providing the infrastructure needed to support development in the Core Strategy. This infrastructure, including that required by Sussex Police, is vital to achieve safe and sustainable future communities, thus should be provided by the levy to address the impacts of future development and comply with this national and local planning policy.

Respondent: Rye Town Council

Representation:

Rye Town Council is making a Neighbourhood Plan to allow the community to influence growth. The community looks forward to the right to receive and spend a proportion of CIL funds on local projects.

Rye Town Council agrees with the principle of CIL, but underscores the need to fix it at a rate which does not have adverse impacts on developments.

Rye Town Council considers that the Schedule should give greater prominence to the distribution of CIL receipts to parish/town councils. Further, it recommends that there is specific reference to Neighbourhood Planning in the schedule.

Rye Town Council is making a Neighbourhood Plan (NP) to allow the
community to influence growth. As a result the community looks forward to
the right to receive and spend a proportion of Community Infrastructure
Levy funds on local projects.

Rye Town Council agrees with the principle of CIL, but underscores the
need to fix it at a rate which does not have adverse impacts on
developments.

Rye Town Council considers that the Schedule should give greater
prominence to the distribution of CIL receipts to parish/town councils -
setting out the two qualifying percentage rates [amended 2013 CIL
Regulations]. Further, it recommends that there is specific reference to
Neighbourhood Planning in the schedule, as the ability to secure local
income from CIL is one of the clearly stated advantages of making a plan.
