This sets out the means by which TDC will seek to ensure the infrastructure needed to support the  Local Plan will be delivered by collaboration with key statutory undertakings (e.g. KCC Highways) and by use of planning requirements imposed on developers of major  sites ( e.g. Community Infrastructure Levies). 

We have considerable concerns about this policy in so far as it relates to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). As we understand it TDC have not yet decided what the CIL might be and as this is calculated by reference to the financial viability of the sites developers will argue strongly that CIL is not applicable as with it the development will not be viable. TDC need to commission independent expert advice on this issue the cost of which should be met by the developers.
