Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) raises funds from the developers of new building projects to help pay for infrastructure needed to support the new development, as set out in:
CIL money is used to fund a variety of infrastructure, including:
- learning and skills
- county sports provision
- health facilities
CIL replaces Section 106 planning obligations for many forms of infrastructure, although Section 106 agreements can still be used for site-specific mitigation measures and affordable housing provision.
We maintain a Community Infrastructure Levy database.
If a CIL charge is revealed on the Local Land Charges register, conveyance solicitors should contact our CIL officer before completing a sale: email@example.com.
When reselling a property, we'll also need a completed CIL Transfer of Assumed Liability (Form 4) when the exchange of contracts is complete.
