Calculate how much you need to pay

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) rates depend on the size, type and location of your development.

The CIL rates are calculated depending on which zone your development is in. You will need to know the zone before you can calculate how much you need to pay.

Zero rated zones

A development may be liable for CIL, but not chargeable – known as ‘zero rated’. This will occur where the development meets the conditions for CIL (liable), but a zero rate applies.  A liability notice will still be issued but will state a zero charge is due.  Examples of these include:

  • sites within strategic housing allocations (CIL zone 1)
  • flats in CIL zones 4 and 5
  • older people’s housing, sheltered housing and extra care housing in CIL zones 4 and 5
  • town centre shops
  • all other development - for example, any development which is not houses, flats, older people’s housing or retail/supermarket
