Annual Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Report

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge which can be applied to new development in East Devon.  

Most new development which creates net additional floor space of 100 square metres or more, or creates a new dwelling, is potentially liable to pay CIL.  The actual amounts are calculated by East Devon District Council and paid to us by them.  We provide a report annually which details the amount received and any amounts spent.  These can be found below:
