On 26 June 2017 the Mayor published for public consultation the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule (PDCS) for a new Mayoral Community Infrastructure Levy (MCIL2). It is intended that this will be levied from April 2019, and will supersede the existing Mayoral Community Infrastructure Levy (MCIL1). MCIL2 will contribute to the funding of Crossrail 2.
More details, and the consultation document, are on the London Assembly website.
The consultation runs from 26 June to 7 August 2017.
The CIL calculator above was produced by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and TfL to indicate the likely level of CIL payable. This is for guidance only. The collecting authority is still required to calculate the correct levy in accordance with the current regulations.
The Levy will be charged by London boroughs on most developments in London at the following rates:
Camden, City of London, City of Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond-upon-Thames and Wandsworth
Barnet, Brent, Bromley, Ealing, Greenwich, Hackney, Haringey, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Redbridge, Southwark and Tower Hamlets
Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Croydon, Enfield, Havering, Newham, Sutton and Waltham Forest
Applications for planning permission should be submitted to the relevant local planning authority.
Your local planning authority will apply the Levy and is responsible for its collection on behalf of the Mayor.
If you require further information, guidance is available on the Mayoral Community Infrastructure Levy page on the GLA website.
There are a number of developments that may be exempt from the Mayoral CIL. They include:
Exemptions are detailed in the CIL regulations issued by and available on the Gov.uk website.
As the Levy is a non-negotiable payment, it is recommended that any question of an exemption is discussed with the relevant local planning authority.
The CIL Collection Group (CCG) is a forum of officers from local planning authorities, TfL, GLA, London Revenues Group, Department for Communities and Local Government and the Planning Inspectorate. It was established to look at issues around the implementation and collection of the Mayoral CIL.
We produce a regular 'Tracker' of progress for borough CILs. These are updated from CCG meetings and communications between TfL and boroughs.
All London Collecting Authorities report progress on CIL liable developments and collection of CIL receipts to TfL on a quarterly basis. See the standard form for payment details.
The developer(s) must complete the CIL Liable Planning Application and returned it to the respective authority. The local authority can then establish whether or not a development is liable for a CIL charge.
