The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge which was introduced as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. Although it came into force on 6 April 2010 not all councils have so far introduced the levy. However, Cornwall Council will begin charging the levy from 1st January 2019. It is therefore now vital for landowners and developers in Cornwall to have an understanding of how this new system works.
