Paying your CIL charge

If you get planning permission, we will issue you with a Liability Notice. This will confirm how much you will need to pay, including information about our  Instalments Policy

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
