The Community Infrastructure Levy is a charge on new development, to fund infrastructure. It is being introduced by many councils across the country and rates vary by location and type of development. Zoom and click on this map to see the status of CIL in your area, and download a free report with details of CIL rates.
As of 30 May 2013, the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order has been amended to introduce a new permitted development right which allows offices (Use Class B1 (a)) to be converted into residential (Use Class C3) without the need for planning permission. The purpose of this online tool is to help users identify and navigate all of the “exemption zones” in one simple and interactive map.
