This is a levy allowing local authorities to raise funds for local infrastructure such as roads, schools and parks from owners or developers of land undertaking new building projects in their area.
We have not made a decision on whether to bring in a levy in Manchester. Before we could introduce a levy we would need to consult with people about any charges we were proposing. The proposed levy would also be examined by an independent examiner.
If you would like to be informed if the Council begins consultation on a proposed levy, register at the planning policy consultation site.
