CIL is a new 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.

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. 

The formal public consultation stage for the most recent update of the Regulation 123 List ran for a period of 6 weeks from Wednesday 15th January to Wednesday 26th February 2020. All representations received are detailed in the Consultation Statement and the updated Regulation 123 List is available to view below.


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.
