Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on most types of new developments:

  • Development over 100 square metres (gross internal area)
  • One or more new dwelling of any floorspace.

Funds raised from CIL can help to pay for local infrastructure projects that are needed to support new developments, such as schools, health services, leisure, open spaces and transport improvements.

The Council adopted the CIL Charging Schedule on 27 September 2023 at Ordinary Council, with an effective date of 15 January 2024.

This means that from that date, the Council will become a “CIL Charging Authority” and any CIL liable development proposals that are granted planning permission on or after that date will be liable to pay the levy.

A copy of the Charging Schedule Adoption Statement is available to view here.
