A special CIL roundtable discussion organised by 3Fox saw a range of interesting and controversial opinions expressed at Ealing Council's offices this week.
Among the topics discussed were:
Ealing's CIL viability studies were undertaken by BNP Paribas Real Estate a year ago, with a final report due in early 2013, to be followed by consultation and then adoption by December 2013. Charging will begin in January 2014.
This process, as well as and plans for CIL rates across London, were discussed at a special roundtable on 22 November by Ealing Council officers Pat Hayes, Lucy Taylor, Noel Rutherford and Samantha Powell, along with Berkeley Homes chairman Tony Pidgley and partners and directors of Benson Elliot, Countryside Properties, Catalyst Housing, GVA, Savills and EC Harris.
"It was a really usefully session that gave us valuable insights," said Ealing Council executive director regeneration and housing Pat Hayes.
3Fox organised the session on Ealing's behalf, and will do the same for Ealing's delegation to MIPIM 2013. Hayes announced that initiative, as well as plans for a fourth issue of Ealing in London magazine in the New Year, during the roundtable discussion.
