Ealing publishes draft CIL rates

Out-Law News | 12 Mar 2014 | 2:43 pm |

Developers of residential schemes within the London Borough of Ealing will be subject to community infrastructure levy (CIL) rates of up to £100 per square metre (16-page / 1.43MB PDF) under proposals published by the Council. 

The Council launched a consultation on its preliminary draft charging schedule at the end of last month. It has proposed to divide the borough into two separate charging areas for residential developments. Within central Ealing, the draft CIL rate is set at £100 per sq m and in all other areas it is set at £50 per sq m.

For retail warehouses, retail parks and superstores above 280 sq m, it has proposed to set a borough-wide rate of £100 per sq m. Other retail uses would be charged at £30 per sq m across the borough under the proposals and a nil rate levy would apply to all other types of development.

The consultation is open for comments until 11 April. The Council said it expects to implement CIL in March 2015.
