  • CIL Review

    Where communities benefit from development they are also more likely to support it, and the Community Infrastructure Levy has played a vital role in contributing to local infrastructure and creating that local support.

    Will each cost no more than 250,000 outside London (450,000 in London), with resale and letting restrictions for first five years.

    Will not be subject to section 106 affordable housing and tariff-based contributions, to help pay for discount.
