The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) process

Stage 5: Notification to Land Charges to apply the charge to the land (council)

Once we have received the CIL payment, providing there are no relief or clawback periods, we will remove the CIL charge from the Land Charges Register.

However, if exemptions or relief have been granted, the CIL charge will remain on the Land Charges Register for either three or seven years, depending on which exemption or relief has been granted. This is in case a disqualifying event occurs, that results in a loss of the exemption or relief and the charge will become payable in full.

If no disqualifying event occurs, the CIL charge will be removed when the clawback period lapses.

In the event that a permission or development is not implemented, and the proposal is not built out, the CIL charge will be removed from the Land Charges Register upon expiry of the planning permission.
