Calculate your CIL costs
Important Notice: The Council implemented a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on 1 January 2019 . Applicants for planning permission for residential developments of 11+ dwellings need to complete the CIL additional liability form.

CIL payments must be index linked from the year that CIL was introduced to the year that the planning permission is granted. This guidance document shows the impact that indexation has had on the charging schedule since it came into force on the 1st January 2019 and how it will affect all CIL chargeable development permitted from the 1st January 2022 to the 31st December 2022 in Gloucester.
