The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tool to help deliver infrastructure to support development.  CIL is payable on development that creates net additional floor space, expressed as pounds per square metre.  The rate of CIL is set in a "charging schedule".

The Council adopted its current CIL Charging Schedule in 2016.  We have been charging CIL on new development approved since 1 September 2016.  At the time of adopting the Charging Schedule, we made clear that an early review would be required to reflect the (emerging) Cranbrook Plan and latest information on development costs and values in East Devon.

Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule

The initial stage in preparing a revised charging schedule involves consultation on a "preliminary draft charging schedule".  If you would like to comment on the CIL Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule consultation document, please email us at or post comments to Planning Policy, East Devon District Council, Blackdown House, Border Road, Heathpark Industrial Estate, Honiton EX14 1EJ.  The consultation period runs from Thursday 21 February until Friday 22 March 2019 (at 5 pm).
