Enforcement

The process and format of the forms is prescribed by the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010, and there are surcharges and penalties if these are not strictly followed.  Failure to assume liability before the commencement of development can result in surcharges of between £50 to £500 per landowner who has an interest in the land.  Anyone failing to submit a  Commencement Notice or comply with an Information Notice, can be charged a surcharge up to a maximum of £2500.  Details are set in Part 9 of the Regulations. 

Monitoring

The CIL regulations require the Council to report on CIL collection and spend. The Council will do this as part of its Annual Monitoring Report, showing how much CIL has been collected, the total amount that has been spent,  and the degree to which particular projects have benefitted, please see Delivery of Projects and Reports page
