What is a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)?


The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities (LAs) in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. The levy gives LAs the power to require developers to pay sums of money to fund infrastructure that is needed as a result of the development such as new or safer road schemes, flood defences, schools, hospitals, green spaces and leisure centres.
