CIL exemptions, relief and exceptional circumstances

Exceptional circumstances relief

Regulation 55 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) allows a charging authority to grant relief where: a section 106 agreement exists on the planning permission permitting the chargeable development; and where the charging authority considers that payment of the full Levy would have an unacceptable impact on the economic viability of the development. The granting of this relief must not constitute a notifiable state aid. The claim must be made using the standard CIL ‘Form 2: Claiming Exemption of Relief’ on the Planning Portal website.

Exceptional circumstances relief policy

In accordance with Regulations 55, 56 and 57 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended), Lichfield District Council as the charging authority for the area, gives notice that relief for exceptional circumstances is available within the district.

This policy is effective from the day the Lichfield CIL charging schedule comes into effect on 13 June 2016.

Anyone wishing to claim relief for exceptional circumstances must follow the procedures set down in the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended).
