The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which allows us to raise funds from new developments in our area. The money can be used to support development and contribute towards new infrastructure such as schools, transport initiatives and leisure facilities needed to support growth in the greater Norwich area.
There is also a Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL), which accounts for 15% of the CIL total and has a more community-focused remit. NCIL still needs to be linked to growth, but must be led by the priorities of the community.
The CIL will apply to new development which adds 100m2 of new floorspace or an additional dwelling.
Section 106 agreements and planning conditions will also continue to be used but in a much reduced and restricted form. Read the CIL regulation 123 list for more information.
The CIL Charging Schedule sets out the charge per square metre that will apply to each category of new development.
