Community Infrastructure Levy

Shortcut to this page : www.birmingham.gov.uk/cil

Regulations governing Section 106 agreements, published in 2010, allows councils to adopt a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) if they wish, and will significantly change the way we collect planning obligation funding in the future.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on new buildings in England and Wales. It is a mechanism to ensure certain types of new development contribute to the infrastructure needed to support that development. This infrastructure will support the growth aspirations for Birmingham as outlined in the Birmingham Development Plan which includes proposals for over 50,000 new homes and 100,000 new jobs.

We must follow a statutory process to adopt a CIL, and the second stage is the publication of our Draft Charging Schedule. The Draft Charging Schedule and associated documents were approved for public consultation by Cabinet on Monday 15th September 2014.

This consultation will commence on Monday 29th September 2014 and end on Monday 10th November 2014.

Our Draft Charging Schedule charge, other CIL documents and associated evidence is attached below.

You can also read the documents and comment on the consultation here...

The documents are available for inspection free of charge during the consultation period at:

In addition, we will also be holding two drop in sessions at the Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, should you wish to speak to an officer regarding the CIL proposals.
