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.

Public Consultation on revised Camden CIL rates
It is proposed to increase the rates of Camden for offices, research and development, and hotel uses in Central London and adjust the rates for other uses in line with building cost inflation. Government legislation sets out that before Camden can change its CIL rates it needs to present its proposals to an Examination in Public before an independent inspector. A public consultation is currently being carried out on these proposals and can be viewed here.
Examination in Public 2020
Camden submitted its proposal for an examination in public on the 20th February 2020. For more information click here.
