DEVELOPERS could be charged for building in Barnsley.

Most developments have some impact on the need for infrastructure and services.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is designed to ensure that developers pay a contribution towards infrastructure that is needed as part of any proposed development.

This could include safer roads, park improvements, flood defences or even schools and leisure centres.

If approved funds raised from it will be invested back into the local community.

There will be a six week public consultation from June 15 which can be found at www.barnsley.gov.uk/CIL.
