    Planning for infrastructure 

    The CIL Charging Schedule was adopted by Council on 27 September 2017, and the schedule and other key documents will be implemented from 1 November 2017.

    Any application decided on or after 1 November 2017 will be liable to pay CIL, regardless of when the application was submitted.

    The CIL Charging Schedule should be read alongside our Developer Contributions SPD, which provides guidance on how CIL will work alongside S106/S278 agreements.

    Adoption follows the examination of our CIL Charging Schedule
