Term Definition
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

CIL is a levy on new development that will be set by local planning authorities, and can be used to pay for new infrastructure such as schools and roads. CIL money will be collected to pay for infrastructure in a local authority area. While CIL is currently optional, from April 2013 local authorities will not be able to raise money for infrastructure through section 106 agreements. This means that most local authorities are likely to have a CIL scheme in place by this time.
