Development Type

CIL rate per square metre

Residential Zone A – Littleport and Soham£40
Residential Zone B - Ely£70

(1) The retail levy will generally be applied to separate retail units, even where these are part of the same planning application. The main exception to this will be where retail uses are part of the same operation – for example, 3 supermarkets which have on-site petrol stations and fast-food outlets. In these cases the operation will be measured as one development.

 Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Instalment Policy

In accordance with Regulation 69B of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended 2011) East Cambridgeshire District Council will allow the payment of CIL by instalments as set out in the table below. This approach of allowing payments over a longer period will assist with cash flow and development viability.
