What is the Community Infrastructure Levy?
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge that we can impose on new developments in Ryedale. The fixed, non-negotiable charge helps to deliver infrastructure to support the new development and is applied to the development’s internal floor space. It can be applied to:
- Private market houses (excluding apartments and self-builds)
- Supermarkets (£120 per m2)
- Retail warehouses (£60 per m2)
Our Charging Schedule (see below) provides more detail on how the charge works, and also details exemptions. We don’t impose CIL charges on any other developments in Ryedale.
When is a CIL used?
To introduce the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), we have to show that there is a shortfall in funding to cover the expected total cost of infrastructure needed to support a development. We have an Infrastructure Delivery Plan for Ryedale and it is part of our Local Plan Strategy.
We assess each new development to make sure that imposing a CIL doesn’t threaten its scale or delivery.
Our Charging Schedule
When we set our CIL rates, we balance the benefits of funding infrastructure through the CIL with the potential impact of imposing a charge on investment and development in Ryedale.
Our Charging Schedule sets out our levy rates and you can read it by following the link below.CIL Charging Schedule
How does the CIL affect me?
If you are a land owner or developer, it’s important that you:
- Are aware of the implications of the CIL charge
- Understand that it is a non-negotiable, fixed charge
- Establish if your scheme is exempt, or not
- Factor the levy into your project viability assessment as a fixed element of cost

Legal Agreements (Section 106)
Prior to the introduction of CIL, infrastructure was sought mostly under Section 106 (S.106) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
S.106 Agreements (also known as Planning Obligations) are attached to planning permissions to ensure that a development proposal is acceptable and any potential negative impacts are mitigated.
These agreements typically result in either physical contributions (on-site or off-site) or financial contributions.
All S.106 Agreements made between Ryedale District Council and interested parties can be found below, categorised by the year in which the agreement was signed.2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019
Any legal agreements stipulated as ‘to follow’ will be added in due course.
Infrastructure Funding Statements
Since 2019 we are required to publish information on developer contributions including: Section 106 planning obligations, Community Infrastructure Levy Payments, Section 278 agreements (works on the highway with the Local Highway Authority) and any agreements that either secure funding towards new development or provide infrastructure as part of any new development.
We do this in our Infrastructure Funding Statement which presents the year-on-year collection, spend/disbursement and holdings of developer contributions from a range of the above sources. We also refer to significant infrastructures schemes delivered and planned.Infrastructure Funding Statement 2021-22 Infrastructure Funding Statement 2020-21 Infrastructure Funding Statement 2019-20
