Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a new form of charge that allows local authorities to raise funds from developers undertaking new building projects in their area. The money collected can be used to help provide a wide range of infrastructure that is needed as a result of development including transport facilities, flood defences, schools, sports facilities and open spaces.

CIL must ordinarily be applied at a fixed rate to all new development (excluding residential extensions and annexes) of one or more dwellings, or with a floor area of more than 100 square metres. This includes non-residential development. Different rates can be applied to different types of development and, where there is appropriate evidence, can be set at zero.
