Local Infrastructure Levy

"The Planning (Scotland) Bill is poised to bring secondary legislation for a local infrastructure levy, a valuable funding tool according to WYG Group Planning Director Stefano Smith FRTPIBut which organisations will be liable for paying the levy, and how can policy-makers ensure it doesn't deter infrastructure delivery?

In his latest piece published on Construction News, Stefano argues that innovative attempts by planning authorities to make fair and effective use of planning obligations should be shared and encouraged. An infrastructure levy could collect up to £75m annually - not a huge contribution on its own, but potentially significant within a cocktail of funding that includes planning obligations. Such a move could help lessen the growing challenges of securing investment and recouping infrastructure costs."

The conference had a wide range of speakers covering different aspects of likely new planning legislative procedures. I took something from all the speakers. It was a very interesting conference - both beneficial and informative. All speakers spoke well and contributed to a whole range of matters from different perspectives with their specific fields of expertise. My main interests were presented and debated well.
