Community Infrastructure Levy 2015-2016

As per Regulation 62A of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Regulations, the Parish Council must report on any financial year in which it receives CIL Receipts.  The first report, covering the period 01/04/2015 to 31/03/2016 can be seen here.


The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a non-negotiable charge on new buildings to help pay towards the infrastructure needed to support growth in an area. CIL was adopted by Chelmsford City Council on 1 June 2014 and is applied to all residential and retail developments which add one or more new dwellings or more than 100sqm of floor space. Affordable housing and certain charitable-led developments are exempt from CIL.

You will also find below a link to explain the CIL for your information.


Land East Of Plantation Road Boreham Chelmsford Essex Ref. No: 15/01873/OUT

It has been announced that the Gladman Appeal has been upheld, which means we have lost our case on a matter of technicalities.  This is extremely disappointing as we will get no benefit from this development, just more traffic on our already over burdened road network. It also means in the future, children from our Primary School will have to be transported by bus to other schools as there is not the capacity to take all the extra pupils this decision will bring. We have all fought long and hard against this development, and I would like to thank everyone for all their help and support in fighting our case. This is a sad day for Boreham and a defeat for common sense.
