Archived - Setting a Community Infrastructure Levy

This page has been archived. It will no longer be updated.

CIL regulations have changed the developer payment landscape by introducing the levy and also by changing when councils can seek s106 obligations. Developer payments contribute to the provision of infrastructure or refurbishment of existing provision to support the additional burden new development makes on both local and strategic infrastructure. This section of the website contains helpful materials to help you understand CIL
We have set out below the most up to date advice on developing and setting your CIL including project planning, evidence base, rate setting, CIL v s106 and implementation based on the experience of those that have already developed their CIL.
If you are new to CIL and want to understand the basics we recommend that you read

(Word 21kb). If you need to explain CIL  (and other development contributions) to   councillors, or others that wish an overview of CIL, then we suggest you use all, or part of our  Developer Payments - Community Infrastructure Levy, s106 agreements and Viability, (April 2014).  
If you are working on setting a CIL you should take a look at Setting your CIL- advice note, CIL: Setting and examination checklist (revised April 2014) and the materials from our latest CIL seminar series- CIL – April 2015 is looming. PAS also provide Community Infrastructure Levy Direct Support to authorities in the development of their CIL by reviewing your evidence, using the experience of those with a levy and acting as a critical friend.
If you are considering employing expert consultants to assist with your evidence for CIL it would be useful to review our advice: CIL procurement: questions to ask. If you are working on setting, implementing or enforcing CIL you will need to refer to the  CIL regulations and DCLG documents
