Community Infrastructure Levy

CIL Charging Schedule and Rates

The Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule (2015) sets out how much will be changed per square metre of new development.

What is the Community Infrastructure Levy?

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which will allow the council to raise funds from new developments for use on infrastructure to support the growth of the borough. 

How is the Community Infrastructure applied in Watford?

In Watford, the CIL came into effect on 1 April 2015. This means that any planning application granted permission on or after that date may be liable to pay CIL if it is over 100 sq.m gross internal floor area, or create one or more new residential dwellings.

Charges will be based on the size, type and location of the new development.
