A council has been accused of "unfairly" allowing developers to avoid paying into a new fund for roads, schools and health services.

Cheshire East Council wants to exempt dozens of planned housing projects from a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

However, several parish councils have said the local authority has "missed an opportunity" to raise money for much-needed community facilities.

The authority said the new system would be "fairer" than the current set-up.

Local planning authorities were given the power to introduce CILs in 2010 to raise money from housing developers.




The funds have to be invested in local transport, education and health services
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
