Community Infrastructure Levy

Relief for social and affordable housing and charities

Relief is also available when new builds are being provided for affordable housing or charitable purposes.

We've introduced a discretionary social housing relief policy for some discounted market sales houses.

This relief is available if the development meets certain criteria and if the housing is accepted in an associated S106 Agreement as affordable housing.

This relief can be claimed using social housing relief form 10 on the Planning Portal.

We have also put into place a policy under regulation 45 of the CIL regulations to allow relief from CIL for charitable institutions under certain circumstances.
