The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge that local authorities can apply to new developments. It’s used to raise funds for infrastructure, facilities and services like schools or transport improvements, to support new homes and businesses in the areas.
Are you paying the right amount of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), or do your development plans factor in CIL reliefs and exemptions?
CIL will likely be a significant part of your development cost, so it’s important you have a detailed understanding of how it applies to your site. It can help you monitor and manage costs more effectively, and ultimately ensure your project is viable.
