A Community infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on development which local planning authorities may introduce in their areas to help fund the social, environmental and physical infrastructure that the new development will need.
In May 2018, the LLDC will open an initial bidding round for funding from the Neighbourhood Priorities Fund, which was set up to administer the Neighbourhood Portion of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). Information about this, including how to make a bid for funding for projects, will be publicised and made available on this webpage in due course. For more information about the Neighbourhood Portion of CIL, please see the CIL Expenditure expandable section below.
Two separate CIL charges will apply in the Legacy Corporation area. The Mayor of London’s Community Infrastructure Levy (Mayoral CIL) which is intended to raise £300 million towards the delivery of Crossrail, and the Legacy Corporation’s CIL.
Mayoral CIL came into effect on 1 April 2012 and your development may currently be liable for Mayoral CIL charges. For more detailed information on the London Mayoral CIL, including whether your development is liable, please visit the CIL pages on the Transport for London (TfL) website.
If your development is liable then you will need to complete a CIL Additional Information Form and submit this with your application before we can process it. Further information on this, together with a copy of the form can be found on the Planning Portal website.
Legacy Corporation CIL
The Legacy Corporation CIL came into effect on the 6 April 2015 and will be used to fund infrastructure which will support the regeneration of the Legacy Corporation’s Area.
