The Community Infrastructure Levy is a fixed betterment tax that will have a significant and lasting impact on land values across the UK. Unlike its development contribution predecessors and affordable housing provision, it will not be subject to negotiation once adopted. It is therefore very important for the development industry to engage in the consultation process and to be professionally represented at the CIL Examination.

We can provide a range of advice to developers, landowners and property professionals to address the issues that CIL is likely to raise. In particular we can provide specialists to advise on the following:

Exceptional Circumstances Relief
Land Payments in Lieu
Expert Witness Role at Examination
Judicial Review of CIL
EU Complaints Procedure & State Aid
Affordable Housing & S106 challenges

"Stuart Andrews, head of planning at commercial law firm Eversheds, says: "The 2014 date should loom large in the minds of authorities because it's going to come round rapidly. Local Authorities need to do an awful lot of groundwork to meet that deadline. Newark and Sherwood District Council became the first local authority to put out a draft CIL charging schedule, setting the level of the tax, for consultation in December. Growth point manager, Adrian Kerrison, says the process from starting work to implementation is likely to take around a year."
