Building and planning

Planning outside National Parks


CIL is likely to take effect later this year, subject to adoption by the council. CIL related information will be requested from applicants from 1 April 2015.

  • This page and accompanying CIL web pages and Guidance Notes will be updated when CIL has come into effect.

  • Please note there can be significant financial and other consequences of not paying CIL or not making notifications to us on time.
