The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008, as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010.
Your development may be liable for a charge under CIL if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.
New developments that create net additional ‘gross internal area’ of 100 square metres or more, or create new dwellings, are potentially liable for the levy.
Some developments may be eligible for relief or exemption from CIL.
