About the Community Infrastructure Levy
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge collected from new developments, which funds facilities such as:
- roads and transport
- sport, recreation and open spaces
The CIL applies to all proposals which add 100m2 of new floorspace or an extra dwelling. This includes bringing vacant building back into use. The amount to pay is the increase in floorspace (m2) multiplied by the rate in the CIL charging schedule.
Camden collects 2 types of Community Infrastructure Levy: the Mayoral CIL and the Camden CIL.
Camden will be adopting a new Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule on 30th October 2020.
Any planning permission granted after this date will be subject to these new rates. The principal changes are that there will be a higher rate of £110 per sqm for offices, research and development and hotel uses in Central London. The existing rates have also been increased slightly in the new schedule for the purposes of clarity to reflect the current levels of indexation applied under the CIL regulations. The new schedule has been subject to an Examination in Public decision to adopt the revised schedule can be viewed here.
