Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
CIL charging schedule and related policies
Wandsworth CIL Charging Schedule
The council approved its Charging Schedule at a meeting of the full Council on 11 July 2012. Our charging schedule came into effect on 1 November 2012. Our CIL charges are in addition to the Mayor of London's CIL.
Our Charging Schedule sets out rates for different types of development in four charging zones in the borough.
We are intending to review our Charging Schedule in 2015. Any changes to the Charging Schedule will be subject to consultation as required by the CIL Regulations.
CIL Instalment Policy
The council has approved an instalment policy. Our instalment policy applies to both the council and the Mayor of London's CIL charges in Wandsworth. On large developments, where details are approved in phases, the instalment policy applies to the charges relating to each individual phase.
CIL Charitable and Social Housing Relief
Under the CIL Regulations certain development by charities is exempt from CIL and development of social (affordable) housing is subject to 100% relief. In addition, the council has approved a Discretionary Charitable Relief Policy.
In order for the council to apply Charitable Exemption, Discretionary Charitable Relief or Social Housing Relief, CIL liable parties must complete a Claiming Exemption or Relief form. This form should be completed and sent to the Council following the grant of planning permission at the same time as the Assumption of Liability form. These forms can be downloaded from the Planning Portal.
Self-Build (new dwellings, annexes and extensions) Exemption
Under the CIL Regulations some development is eligible for exemption as self-build projects. To be eligible the claimant must be the owner of the property and it must be their sole or main residence. They must also complete the correct Claiming Exemption Form for the type of self-build development that is taking place.
