The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which is applied on most new developments. The money raised will go towards infrastructure projects within the borough that are needed to support development. The types of infrastructure that can be funded by CIL include:
CIL is charged per square metre of additional floor space (GIA - gross internal area) and varies according to location, size and development type.
We recommend that you seek pre-application advice so we can advise you on CIL, however this is not compulsory.
We have free appointments available to book on Wednesday's 1pm to 5pm and Thursday's 9am to 12pm at our Civic Offices, Union Street, Chorley, PR7 1AL. If you wish to discuss CIL in relation to potential, pending, or current planning applications. To book an appointment please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CIL is charged in pounds per square metre (£ / m²) on the net additional increase in floorspace. View more information on CIL charges and instalments.
