Payment of CIL

 We will issue a Demand Notice following commencement of your development. The Demand Notice will detail the amount of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) due, a payment reference (which will need to be quoted when making payment) and information about instalments where relevant. A payment reference looks like CIL123456-LP00123.

Late payment of a CIL charge means any instalment plan is lost and all remaining CIL liability (all instalments) will then become due in full immediately.

Payment Options

Penalties and Surcharges

There are penalties if you don’t follow the CIL process. Some of the penalties are statutory requirements and some are at the discretion of the council. We will pursue debtors for non-payment in accordance with the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended)

Guide to Penalties and Surcharges

Instalments

The CIL Regulations set a default requiring full payment of the Levy charge within 60 days of the commencement of the chargeable development.

Regulation 69B of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) allows a Charging Authority to establish an Instalments Policy for more flexible payment arrangements.

Late payment of a CIL charge means any instalment plan is lost and all remaining CIL liability (all instalments) will then become due in full immediately. The section on 'Paying CIL and CIL Surcharges' provides more details of how to pay and penalties which apply under the Regulations.
