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 consultation on our Draft Charging Schedule ended on Monday 10th November. Subject to the resposes received as part of this consultation, we hope to adopt our CIL in April 2015. We will keep this page updated with our progress.

If you would like to talk to someone about our CIL, please email hayley.anderson@birmingham.gov.uk or call her on 0121 303 4820.
