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 is available on our CIL and planning applications web pages (PDF/206KB/1 page).
We have also prepared a briefing presentation (PDF/393KB/27 pages) on how CIL will affect the development industry.

How will CIL 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 advice note - updated April 2017 (PDF/195KB/3 pages).
Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP)
The Infrastructure Delivery Plan (PDF/6.2MB/154 pages) (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.
