Community Infrastructure Levy (CiL)

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities to secure funding for infrastructure to support development in their area. This is done by requiring developers to pay a standard charge per square meter (m2) of qualifying new development. The charge that we expect for development across the District is laid out in Sevenoaks District Council’s CIL Charging Schedule. A copy of this can be found on the Council’s website:

CIL is proposed to help pay for things such as schools, health facilities and transport improvements - all infrastructure projects that are necessary to support new development.
