Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The community infrastructure levy (CIL) is a charge we apply to new development to help pay for the infrastructure needed to support it.
CIL must strike a balance between paying for infrastructure and not stopping development by making it financially unviable. You can find out more information by following these links:

If you are making a planning application you need to include information to meet the CIL requirements.
More information on our CIL and planning applications.
We have also prepared a CIL briefing on how CIL will affect the development industry. CIL briefing presentation (PDF/393KB/27 pages).
How CIL will be spent and managed
Some of the money will be given to parish and town councils to spend on local infrastructure projects. More information for parish and town councils can be found in our parish and town council advice note - updated April 2017 (PDF/195KB/3 pages).
Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP)
Our Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) says what infrastructure is needed to support the development set out in the local plan. It can also help identify what kind of infrastructure the CIL can be spent on. Infrastructure Delivery Plan (PDF/6.2MB/154 pages).
Our IDP has been updated to take account of the responses to the recent consultation. The updated IDP will be considered at Cabinet on 13 September 2017. IDP (August 2017) (PDF/2.39MB/160 pages).
