Steps to making a Community Infrastructure Levy payment

1. Additional information form (PDF) 

Submit this form when an application for planning permission has been made, so that we can calculate the amount you need to pay.

2. Assumption of liability form (PDF)

Submit this form to take responsibility for payment. We will then send you a liability notice which gives the payment amount. If we do not receive this form, the owner of land will need to pay the CIL.

It is possible to withdraw or transfer liability to some else.

3. Commencement notice (PDF)

Submit this to inform us of when development will start. We will then send you a demand notice, which sets out how much needs to be paid and when. If you do not submit this form before your development starts, you may be subject to a surcharge.

4. Payment Procedure

Please quote the payment reference on the demand notice. We will issue a receipt after each payment made. Payments are accepted by BACS/internet transfer to:

  • Account Number: 24312843 
  • Sort Code: 50-30-03 

It is possible to pay CIL in instalments: Instalments Policy (PDF)
