Community Infrastructure Levy

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) whether the community infrastructure levy will apply to developments with permitted development rights; (323305)

(2) whether the community infrastructure levy will apply to agricultural building and developments which do not have permitted development rights.

The August 2009 CIL consultation document described the definition of buildings which will be liable to pay CIL, and what exemptions the Government were minded to grant.

The Government listened to the concerns of the agricultural industry during the consultation period. As a result, the draft regulations published earlier include a transitional exemption from CIL for new buildings that rely on the General Permitted Development Order. The charge cannot apply to new permitted development until 6 April 2013.
