Published: Tuesday, 14th February 2017

Any planning decisions made on or after 15 February 2017 will be subject to the council’s adopted Community Infrastructure Levy scheme and charging schedule.

The CIL applies to all residential dwellings, residential annexes and extensions over 100 metres squared and retail superstores and warehouses.

To see how this may affect your planning application please view our CIL charges and payments page.

Money raised through the Community Infrastructure Levy will contribute towards funding improvements to infrastructure (facilities and services) that are required to support the development and growth planned for the Borough of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk. You can read more about how the money raised will be spent on the CIL governance and funding page.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (also known as the CIL or 'the Levy') is the Government’s chosen approach to set a mandatory tariff on development and came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010.
