CIL Appeal Guidance

 You can't appeal against the principle of paying Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) but if you think we've got the amount of CIL you have to pay and / or any relief you are entitled to wrong you can ask us to check this. This is known as a review. If you're still unhappy with our decision on the amount you have to pay you can appeal to the Valuation Office Agency.

You can also appeal our decisions on the following:

  • Who should pay CIL (known as apportioned liability)
  • A fine added to the amount of CIL you have to pay (known as a surcharge)
  • The day your development was started (known as deemed commencement)
  • If we send you a CIL stop notice
