Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge levied in respect of development. The legislative basis for CIL is found in Part 11 of the Planning Act 2008 (PA 2008), which empowers the Secretary of State to make regulations providing for the imposition of CIL. Those regulations were made in the form of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (the CIL Regulations), SI 2010/948. CIL applies to both England and Wales, although this Practice Note only covers how CIL is to be calculated in Wales, and in England in respect of a planning permission granted before 1 September 2019 or a liability notice, whenever issued, in respect of such a planning permission. For guidance on how the amount of CIL which is due is to be calculated in England in respect of a planning permission granted on or after 1 September 2019 (or a liability notice, whenever issued, in respect of such a planning permission), see Practice Note: Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)—calculating CIL in England.
