73A.(1) If a charging authority has made infrastructure payments available in its area it may accept one or more infrastructure payments in satisfaction of the whole or part of the CIL due in respect of a chargeable development.

(2) An infrastructure payment is the provision of one or more items of infrastructure by a person (P) who would be liable to pay CIL in respect of a chargeable development on commencement of that development.

(3) Where CIL is paid by way of an infrastructure payment the amount of CIL paid is an amount equal to the value of the infrastructure provided.

(4) Paragraph (1) is subject to the following provisions of this regulation.

(5) A charging authority must aim to ensure that the infrastructure provided through an infrastructure payment will be used to support the development of its area.

(6) A charging authority may accept an infrastructure payment relating to infrastructure to be provided outside its area if it considers that the infrastructure will support the development of its area.

(7) A charging authority may not accept an infrastructure payment unless—

(a)it is satisfied that P—

(i)has, or is likely to have, sufficient control over the land on which the infrastructure is to be constructed to enable P to provide the infrastructure, and

(ii)has provided the charging authority with evidence that P has obtained, or will be likely to be able to obtain, any relevant statutory authorisations that are necessary to enable the infrastructure to be constructed;

(b)it is satisfied that the infrastructure to be provided—

(i)is relevant infrastructure, and

(ii)is not necessary to make the development granted permission by the relevant permission acceptable in planning terms;

(c)the infrastructure will be provided to the charging authority or a person nominated by the charging authority (with that person’s agreement);

(d)P has assumed liability to pay CIL in respect of the chargeable development; and

(e)an agreement to provide the infrastructure is entered into before the chargeable development mentioned in paragraph (2) is commenced.

(8) The agreement mentioned in paragraph (7)(e) must—

(c)must satisfy the requirements of paragraph (9).

(9) The agreement mentioned in paragraph (7)(e) must ensure that by the time the CIL cash amount would be payable if it was being paid in money, an amount equal to the CIL cash amount must either—

(a)have been used to provide the infrastructure; or

(b)be subject to an arrangement so that—

(i)it can only be used by P for the purposes of providing the infrastructure,

(ii)P cannot use that amount as a means of securing additional funding or in any other way that would benefit P,

(v)if the CIL cash amount becomes payable in money, any funds subject to the arrangement are used for that purpose.

(10) Where the infrastructure is to be provided to a person other than the charging authority, the charging authority may not enter into the agreement mentioned in paragraph (7)(e) unless it is satisfied that that person will use the infrastructure to support the development of the charging authority’s area.

(11) For the purposes of this regulation, the value of the infrastructure provided must be determined by an independent person, and is the cost to P of providing that infrastructure (including related design costs) on the day the valuation takes place.

(12) In this regulation—

(a)“the CIL cash amount” means the CIL the infrastructure payment is accepted in satisfaction of;

(3) To be valid a request under paragraph (2) must be—

(b)accompanied by proof of the amount of CIL that has already been paid.

(4) Subject to the following paragraphs of this regulation, the charging authority must grant any valid request made under paragraph (2).

(5) This regulation does not apply where B is a planning permission granted under section 73 of TCPA 1990.

(6) Any CIL paid in relation to A can only be credited against the CIL due in relation to B to the extent that the CIL paid in relation to A relates to buildings (“relevant buildings”) that—

(a)have not been completed when the request is made; and

(b)are not taken into account in reducing the chargeable amount in relation to B through the operation of regulation 40.

(7) Where—

(a)B is a phased planning permission; and

(b)the amount to be credited against the CIL due in relation to B is greater than the amount due in relation to the first phase of B commenced after a request under this regulation has been granted,

the remainder must be credited against the next phase or phases of B until there is no remainder.

(8) Paragraph (9) applies where—

(a)a request under paragraph (2), which is a valid request, is made in respect of the amount due in relation to B;

(14) The difference between the amount paid in relation to A and amount due in relation to B after any abatement has been granted under this regulation is not to be treated as an overpayment for the purposes of regulation 75.
