Caroline and Saskia are at what sounds like a very good CIL update conference today and have sent me emails with the following info;

CLG confirm the target date for bringing in the CIL reforms is November 2013 and associated guidance, with an indication over the summer of what  the changes are likely to be.

PINS view is that CIL should come out of land value uplift (as per Barker) and not be at the expense of affordable housing and other policy requirements. Whether and how that point is taken forward is not clear at the moment.
