Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Payments

The Community Infrastructure Levy (the ‘levy’) is a charge which can be levied by local authorities (Cornwall Council) on new development in their area. It is an important tool for local authorities to use to help them deliver the infrastructure needed to support development in their area.

The levy only applies in areas where a local authority (Cornwall Council) has consulted on, and approved, a charging schedule which sets out its levy rates and has published the schedule on its website.

Most new development which creates net additional floor space of 100 square metres or more, or creates a new dwelling, is potentially liable for the levy.

Some developments may be eligible for relief or exemption from the levy. This includes residential annexes and extensions, and houses and flats which are built by ‘self-builders’. There are strict criteria that must be met, and procedures that must be followed, to obtain the relief or exemption.

CIL Regulation 59C sets out that a local council must use CIL receipts passed to it to ‘support the development of the local council’s area, or any part of that area, by funding:

a) the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure:

or b) anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area͛.
