Raising funds for infrastructure delivery


The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is the way in which the Council collects financial contributions from developers to help pay for new and improved infrastructure. 

If you are proposing to build any of the following it is likely that your development will be liable for CIL:

  • New dwellings
  • New dwellings used as holiday lets
  • Supermarkets or retail warehouses over 100sqm in size
  • Extensions of greater than 100sqm to dwellings, dwellings used as holiday lets, supermarkets or retail warehouses

New CIL Regulations and Guidance were published on 24th February by the Government. These make a number of changes to how the levy will work in practice, including the provision of relief for self-build housing.
