Community Infrastructure Levy

CIL comes into effect for planning permissions granted after 17 February 2020. The money raised will be used to fund infrstructure projects. A portion will go to the Parish to be spent on local priorities. Broadly, it will be charged on most new houses and extensions at the rate of £150/sqm, though there are exceptions for social housing developments and self-build and a lower rate for businesses. So for a new 100sqm house or extension the CIL charge will be £15,000. Where CIL is less than £200,000 it is payable 60 days after work starts, where it is more than £200,000 it is payable in 4 equal instalments. Forms and an excel calculator tool are available online from Chiltern District Council.
