Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

 More information is also available on The Ryedale Plan website.


The Council adopted an Instalment Policy (1 September 2016) setting out the payment framework for paying CIL liability, operational from 6 September 2016. The Policy can be viewed here (PDF, 1 page 37kb).

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tariff-based fixed charge which is applied to the net internal floor space of a development (m2). The proposed charge is defined in two ways, by use of the intended development, and by the location (and being over 100 m2 in the first instance if non-residential). The only uses that are subject to the proposed charge are:

  • Private market houses (excluding apartments and self-builds) with a proposed charging Schedule of a low value area (at £45 per m2) and all other area charge of £85 per m2
  • Super markets (£120 per m2); and
  • Retail warehouses (£60 per m2).
    This is available to view in the Charging Schedule, which also provides more detail on the precise operation of the charge as there are some exemptions. No other developments are subject to CIL charging by Ryedale District Council.


Members of the Council approved use of a Charging Schedule (PDF, 6 pages, 1743kb) at a meeting of Extraordinary Full Council on Thursday, 14 January 2016. The Charging Schedule commenced on Tuesday, 1 March 2016.

This covers any relevant application that is determined from the date Council resolved to implement CIL (1 March 2016). It is important that both land owners and developers are aware of the implications of the CIL charge because it is a non-negotiable, fixed charge. Accordingly it will be necessary to either establish that the scheme is exempt, or factor this into the viability assessment as a fixed element of cost.
