The Government has published a Community Infrastructure Levy consultation document (consultation period expiring on 30 December 2011) setting out how much of the monies collected by Planning Councils obtained via a planning application have to be passed on to Parish Councils and Town Councils.

If you don't have a parish or a town council in your area, there is no intention of passing any sums collected to other neighbourhood groups (which may be set up under the new Localism/Big Society agenda) for local spending arising from new development.
