Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

Community Infrastructure (CIL) is a tool to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of an area.  The levy is charged on new development that creates either 100sqm of new gross internal area floorspace or (a) new dwelling(s) of any size.

Horsham District Council(HDC) sets the CIL Charging Schedule in this area and calculates the CIL payable by developers in line with their charging schedule.

Kilnwood Vale and the development North of Horsham will not have a CIL charge. CIL is payable once a development has commenced.
