Community Infrastructure Levy

Extensive experience advising on Community Infrastructure Levy liabilities, calculations and reliefs. 

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a financial levy recovered by the planning authority where a particular type of development is granted and implemented.

It is governed by a complicated set of regulations and where planning permission is granted, liability for payment of the Community Infrastructure levy can be triggered. The Levy can be a significant financial liability; we can advise on ways to mitigate that liability in terms of cash flow implications and entitlement to exemptions and reliefs.

Not all local planning authorities seek to recover the Community Infrastructure Levy where permission for relevant development is granted. However, the majority do or are in the process of adopting it. Therefore, an understanding of any liability or potential liability when applying for planning permission is crucial. This is particularly the case where the financial viability for a development may be marginal. 

Our team has a wealth of experience in dealing with the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations. We can advise on liability, the correct calculation for Levy, exemptions and reliefs. As part of your application for development we can also advise on mechanisms to ensure that liability is mitigated, either in terms of the amount payable or the timing and deferral of payments.
