Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge on new development to help pay for community infrastructure. 

In Barnet, developments granted planning permission from 1st April 2012 may be liable for a charge under CIL.  To establish whether or not a development is liable for a CIL charge, new planning applications involving additional floorspace must now be submitted with a new CIL ‘additional information’ form. For more information read the CIL page and NLRC.

Completing the forms accurately, submitting clear plans and providing detailed information helps everyone because:

  • it helps applicants to explain their intentions
  • it helps Planning understand what is involved and assess it fully
  • it helps people whose views are sought about a proposal to give proper advice in the shortest possible time
  • it can avoid neighbours misunderstanding what is proposed and raising queries or objections.

Make sure you have checked the national and local requirements before submitting your application.
