Changes to Community Infrastructure Levy regulations

by on February 13, 2014

You may be aware that the Government is amending the Community Infrastructure Levy regulations.

Subject to the Parliamentary approval process, the new regulations are expected to come into force in February.

Among other changes, the regulations will introduce an exemption for self builders and provide for additional flexibility around the re-use of vacant buildings.

The draft regulations are available on the website.

The Portal will publish an application form for self-build exemption claims (for people building or extending their own home) when the regulations come into force.

We will also be updating our current CIL guidance and amending existing CIL forms to reflect the new regulations.

    was my comment last week received please?

  2. Are you able to advise when the change might come into effect / the necessary forms for self builders to complete will be available on the website?

    I understand, from a planning officer, that the change to CIL regs means that a domestic extension of greater than 100 sq m is now not subject to CIL Can anyone corroborate.
