3. What kinds of development can be charged CIL?
The Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) allow for a CIL charge to be levied on any type of development where a net increase in floor space exceeding 100m2 is created. However, for residential development creating a new dwelling the charge can be levied on any net increase in floor space.
Exceptions to the above include residential extensions, affordable housing, charitable developments and self-build housing (as defined by the regulations) which are exempt from being charged CIL.
On redevelopment sites, existing floor space will be deducted from proposed floor space to determine the amount of CIL to be charged subject to that existing floor space meeting certain tests as set out in the regulations.
The types of development that will be charged CIL in East Devon are set out within the Charging Schedule.
