Community Infrastructure Levy Review 2022

Closes 26 Sep 2022

Opened 20 Jun 2022


**Unfortunately, the appendices associated with the CIL Viability Study were not included in the relevant documents. These are now available here and on the Birmingham City Council website.

As a result, the consultation has been extended to 5:00pm on Monday 26 September**

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which can be levied by local authorities on new development in their area. It is an important mechanism to ensure certain types of new development contribute to the infrastructure needed to support that development.

This infrastructure will support the growth aspirations for Birmingham as outlined in the Birmingham Development Plan which includes proposals for over 50,000 new homes and 100,000 new jobs (adopted 10 January 2017).

The charge provides a greater level of certainty for developers and land owners regarding their contributions and will be charged per net square metre of new development.

The adopted CIL rates have been in place since January 2016 and there has been no demonstrable adverse impact on the supply of development land or the viability of developments coming forward across the city. Since the evidence base for the adopted CIL was prepared, there have been changes to sales values and build costs, and we are taking this opportunity to review our CIL charges.
