Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge we apply to new developments, to help to fund improvements to infrastructure.

We will still use S106 agreements, but only for site specific requirements and to secure affordable housing.

You can look at the Planning Portal for information about CIL, and to download the CIL forms.
