CIL Charging Schedule

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.

UPDATE (September 2019): The 2019 amendments to the CIL regulations removed the requirement for authorities to publish a CIL Regulation 123 Infrastructure List. By no later than 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 a Section 106 agreement to be negotiated on a site specific basis.

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
