Below is some more info on Cil and the funding process

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and the Section 106 (S106) agreements

As part of the planning  process, a developer often has to give money to the council to pay for improvements in the area that they’re developing in. This is usually through a planning charge called the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) but is sometimes through a planning obligation called a Section 106 agreement.

80% of the money that’s raised is used to pay for city-wide projects improving things like roads and schools.  You can see the city’s priorities for use of this funding in the Regulation 123 list.

15% of CIL funds and 33% of some S106 funds are made available for local decision making by councillors.
