CIL is a financial levy that Local Authorities can choose to charge on new developments. The money will be used to support development by contributing to the funding of infrastructure that the Council, local community and neighbourhoods want.

Dudley Council's CIL Charging Schedule was implemented on 1st October 2015 and applies to certain residential and retail developments, based on the type, size and location of the development proposal. 

Revised CIL Instalments Policy - in light of Covid-19 and the expected economic impact on the development and construction industries, a revised CIL instalments policy was adopted by the Council on the 23rd September 2020, with effect from the 24th September 2020. This policy supersedes the policy set out within the CIL Charging Schedule dated October 2015.

The revised policy applies to both CIL liable planning applications that are granted permission following the adoption of the revised policy and to existing permissions which have not commenced. Those developments that have already commenced will be required to comply with the original October 2015 policy, as required by regulations.

The requirement for the Council to maintain a CIL Regulation 123 list has been removed following the enactment of the new CIL Regulations on 1st September 2019.

Therefore the CIL Regulation 123 list is now to be used as an informative document on how infrastructure may and will be delivered and funded in Dudley through CIL income and section 106 planning obligations. The Council's CIL Regulation 123 list will be replaced by the Council's new Infrastructure Funding Statement by 31st December 2020.

If you are considering buying land for development and/or submitting a planning application in Dudley, please be advised that a CIL charge will apply to all relevant applications. 


Planning applications

If your development is liable for CIL you should complete and submit a CIL Additional Information Form and an Assumption of Liability Notice alongside your planning application. Further information can be found on the Planning Portal .

A CIL Calculator has been developed to assist developer in calculating potential CIL charges for individual developments.
