Hillingdon's Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a new charge which allows the Council to raise funds from developers undertaking new building projects.

The money raised will be used to pay for infrastructure required to support development - this could include transport schemes, flood defences, schools, health and social care facilities, parks, open spaces and leisure centres. To a large extent, CIL will replace planning obligations as a means of funding infrastructure provision in Hillingdon.
