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.

2. Paying your CIL charge
If you get planning permission, we will:
If you don't agree with the amount you need to pay, you can ask us to recalculate the charge. You need to contact us within 28 days of receiving your Liability Notice for us to recalculate it.
If you still don't agree with the charge, you can appeal within 60 days of receiving your Liability Notice. You can look at GOV.UK to find out how to appeal to the Valuation Office Agency.
If you do not pay your CIL charge, we can:
remove the option for you to pay in instalments
take enforcement action, including issuing a Stop Notice
