Community infrastructure levy
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds from developers undertaking new building projects in their area. On 29 February 2012 the Mayor agreed his charging schedule.
Hillingdon Council has now submitted its Community Infrastructure Levy Draft Charging Schedule to the Secretary of State for Examination. Hearing sessions are scheduled to take place on 11 and 12 June 2013. Please click here for further information.
