Intouch Winter 2020 - New Community Infrastructure Levy policy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge payable by landowners wishing to develop their land, which was introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a way for local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds to help deliver infrastructure, facilities and services in their area e.g. schools and transport improvements. The Levy is intended to create a fairer spread of contribution towards the cost of infrastructure.
