Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

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.

Any Council that implements a CIL is required to have a Regulation 123 List that sets out specific infrastructure projects which have been identified as eligible for CIL funding. Dudley Council's first Regulation 123 List was approved in September 2015.

Consultation on the Revised Draft CIL Regulation 123 List ran from 15th February to 29th March 2018 and has now closed. Comments received during the consultation are currently being considered and an amended regulation 123 list will be published later in the year.

Copies of the Consultation Draft, along with the adopted CIL Charging Schedule and Regulation 123 List are available for public inspection during normal office hours at:

  • Dudley Council’s Offices at 4 Ednam Road, Dudley, West Midlands, DY1 1HL;

  • Dudley Council Plus Centre reception, located at 259 Castle Street, Dudley, West Midlands, DY1 1LQ; and

  • at all main Dudley Libraries.

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.
