The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge. The CIL was introduced by the Planning Act 2008 and acts as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to use to help them to deliver infrastructure to support the development of their region. Self-builders can claim for exemption from the CIL.
How to claim
Claims for a self-build exemption (relating to a whole house) should be submitted on Form 7: Self Build Exemption Claim Form Part 1 and followed by further supporting information, when the development is finished, on Form 7: Self Build Exemption Claim Form Part 2.
