Community Infrastructure Levy

What is CIL?

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a new planning charge, introduced by the Government through the Planning Act 2008 to provide a fair and transparent means for ensuring that development contributes to the cost of the infrastructure it will rely upon, such as schools and roads.  The Levy applies to most new buildings and charges are based on the size and type of new floorspace.

The Council's Charging Schedule came into force on 1st February 2013.

The council have produced a detailed guidance for applicants which may answer any queries you may have.
