Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Consultation

Background

Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council is a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Authority. Since its CIL charges took effect on 31st December 2014, it has published a Regulation 123 list on its website.

The Regulation 123 list is a list containing infrastructure projects that may be fully or partly funded by CIL.

Proposed Changes

As a result of the decision of Cabinet on 17th November 2020 the Council is consulting on some changes to its Regulation 123 List. The consultation is for a period of 28 days from Tuesday 24th November to Monday 21st December 2020.

The proposed changes to the Council’s Regulation 123 List are set out in the following table:

A473 between Tonteg Roundabout and Upper Boat Roundabout Add to list

It will encourage modal shift and lead to the removal of cars from the strategic highway corridor in the north of the County Borough, reducing traffic congestion at key pinch points where air quality is consequentially high.

A passenger service to Hirwaun would also ensure a high level of current and future accessibility to employment and other services both locally and elsewhere in the region. 

A473 between Tonteg Roundabout and Upper Boat Roundabout Add to list

Underperforming due to numerous sub-standard junctions
