Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
CIL is a charge which can be levied by local authorities on new development in their area. It is an important tool for local authorities to use to help them deliver the infrastructure needed to support development in their area. The projects which can be supported are identified in the council's annual Infrastructure Funding Statement.
If you are submitting a planning application, it is necessary to submit additional information to allow us to calculate your CIL liability. Further information and all the required CIL forms are available on the Planning Portal website.
For further information, please read CIL Advice for Applicants which covers the process and how the CIL charge is calculated. This should be read in conjunction with the Charging Schedule and Annual CIL Rate Summary
The council has also approved an Instalments Policy, which you may be eligible for.
Annual Infrastructure Funding Statements
Following the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) Regulation 121A, it is now a requirement to publish an infrastructure funding statement annually by 31st December on our website.
The infrastructure funding statements are a summary of developer contribution receipts, allocations, expenditure and any unspent or unallocated receipts collected from Section 106 agreements and Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) within the financial year (April - March).
