Setting the Community Infrastructure Levy charge

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charging rate must be set based on evidence of an infrastructure need, for which there must be a deficit in funding, and on the basis of evidence on the economic viability of bringing forward a proposal for development within the borough. The evidence supporting the charging schedule can be found in the CIL examination library.
