You must submit an Additional Information (Form 1) with your planning application for all types of development specified in our Charging Schedule:
- residential development of one or more dwellings through new build or conversions even if less than 100 square metres
- the establishment of other residential floorspace such as extensions, and other ancillary buildings such as stores, garages if over 100 square metres (or less than 100 square metres if it contributes to the creation of new dwelling)
- convenience based supermarkets, superstores and retail warehouses
- storage and distribution relating to B8 uses - as set out in the Use Classes Order
The information you give on this form helps us work out if you need to pay CIL (and how much) or not.
If your proposed development is exempt or has chargeable amount of zero in our Charging Schedule, you do not need to submit the Additional Information (Form 1).
If it's not clear from your planning application whether you could be liable to pay CIL, we can ask you to complete an Additional Information (Form 1).
You won’t be asked to complete a CIL Questions Form for your proposed development if:
- the development comes under one of our CIL Exemption categories - for example, the inside if the building is smaller than 100 square metres
- a zero chargeable amount is specified on our Charging Schedule
We may still ask for a CIL Questions Form if it’s not clear from your application whether the proposed development is open to CIL charges.
Assumption of liability
If you know who will pay the CIL charge at this point, you also need to submit the Assumption of Liability (Form 2) - we strongly advise you to submit this with your planning application.
Claiming relief from CIL
If you think your development (or part of your development) is eligible for relief from CIL you'll need to submit the relevant exemption claim - again, we strongly advise you to submit this with your planning application.
