Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) process

Stage 6: Issue of demand notice (council)

When we have received the commencement notice, we will issue a demand notice to the persons who have assumed liability for paying CIL.

The notice will set out the date that CIL must be paid by; in most cases, you will have at least 60 days to pay from the date of commencement.

Where instalments apply, the demand notice will set out the amount due in each instalment and the date it must be paid by.

Please note that shortly after issuing of a demand notice you will be invoiced separately to enable ease of payment.

Withdrawal of instalments facility and penalty surcharges

Where an assumption of liability form or a commencement notice is not received, and work starts, we will withdraw the right to pay by instalments and payment will be due in full and immediately.

If payment is not made by the due date, we will impose penalty surcharges and interest. Payment of CIL is enforceable through the planning process and the courts.
