Community infrastructure levy
What is the Community Infrastructure Levy?
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge by local authorities to collect funds from new developments. It will be used to fund facilities including:
- Roads and other transport
- Schools and other education
- Sport/recreation and open spaces
The CIL will apply to all proposals which add 100m2 of new floorspace or an extra dwelling.
The amount to pay is the increase in floorspace (m2) multiplied by the rate in the CIL charging schedule. The rate depends on the area and type of development.
In Camden we collect two CILs: the Mayoral CIL and the Camden CIL.
The Mayor of London introduced a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) to help fund Crossrail. The Mayoral CIL rate in Camden is £50 per m2.
