Local councils in England with an annual turnover of £6.5 million or less must complete an annual return in accordance with proper practices summarising their activities at the end of each financial year. In the annual return the term ‘local council’ includes a Parish Meeting, a Parish Council and a Town council.
CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy)
The CIL is a charge on new development payable to councils. It is used to address demands of growth, including funding infrastructure such as new schools and transport improvements, needed to support new development in the borough.
Sandhurst Town Council is required under Regulation 62A of the CIL Regulations to prepare and publish an annual report detailing funds received and spent.
Parish and Town Councils that have received a proportion of CIL funds have a duty to produce an annual report that details the amount of CIL funds received and spent.
