Chichester District Council closed its consultation on its proposed Community Infrastructure Levy [CIL] on 23rd April. Depending on the reaction to the comments received it is probable that a Draft Charging Schedule will be examined in public before being adopted later this year.

The effect is for a new development tax being imposed on new residential and retail development in the district. The tax proposed will be calculated at a rate of £120 per m2 in the district south of the SDNP and £200 per m2 in the north. Retail development will be charged £125 per m2 for food based and £20 per m2 for comparison shopping. New student housing will also attract a charge of £60 per m2.

If you have a scheme likely to be submitted for planning this year it is worth understanding the implications of applying now and negotiating a s.106 Agreement or waiting for the new CIL regime. Feel free to discuss with Alex who has an in depth knowledge of the subject.

With the consolidation of local government legal agencies, the Residential Tribunal Service is vacating the first floor offices at Midland House in Market Avenue, Chichester and moving into the Law Courts. We have been instructed by the landlord to market the suite to find a replacement tenant for the 3,172 sqft of offices.

They are very well situated being very close to South Street, South Pallant as well as the A27, railway station and bus station. There are 6 on site car parking spaces at the rear .

Internally the space is very flexible and is currently fitted out with a mix of partitioned offices, meeting room, an open plan area and staff room/kitchen.
