Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy charged on new development in the Vale.  The money raised will be used to fund infrastructure to support growth in the district.

CIL Charging Schedule

The CIL Charging Schedule was implemented in the Vale of White Horse 1 November 2017 and the key documents are listed below:

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

UPDATE (September 2019): The 2019 amendments to the CIL regulations removed the requirement for authorities to publish a CIL Regulation 123 List.  By 31 December 2020 this list will be replaced with an Infrastructure Funding Statement.  However, in the meantime the list remains a useful indication of infrastructure that may be CIL funded and what is likely to be required as part of Section 106 agreements, to be negotiated on a site-specific basis.
