For information on the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) application process, guidance and forms, policy information and procedures, please visit Community Infrastructure Levy on the Planning Portal's website.

Payment of the CIL levy becomes due upon commencement of development. It should be noted that the definition of 'commencement' for the purposes of the CIL regulations differs from commencement for planning permission purposes - these differences are detailed in the Definition of Commencement note.
