Guidance for parish and town councils
A proportion of any Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) money is given to the town or parish council where the development took place.
To help you, we've published a guide that includes:
- roles and responsibilities
- what proportion of CIL will be passed on
- how it can be spent
- your reporting requirements

Town and parish CIL monitoring reports
We must pass a percentage of any CIL money raised to the town or parish council where the development is taking place.
The percentage is currently set at 15% (capped at £100 per annum, per Council Tax paying dwelling), or 25% (uncapped) in areas with a made Neighbourhood Plan.
Any town or parish councils that have received CIL must publish an annual CIL report that includes:
- the total amount of CIL receipts for the financial year
- the total CIL expenditure for the financial ear
- a breakdown of CIL expenditure for the financial year
