Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) appeals and enforcement

CIL appeals

There are a variety of options available regarding appealing CIL.

Most appeals must be submitted and determined prior to commencement. 

Appeals are only possible on the following grounds, in that we:

  • incorrectly calculated the amount of CIL. (Before making the appeal, the developer must first request an internal review by the Council, known as a Regulation 113 review).
  • incorrectly apportioned liability between landowners
  • incorrectly determined charitable relief
  • with regard to residential annexes, incorrectly determined that the development is not wholly within the curtilage of the main dwelling
  • with regard to self-build schemes, incorrectly determined the value of the exemption
  • incorrectly applied surcharges
  • deemed the development to have commenced when it did not
  • incorrectly issued a Stop Notice for non-payment.
